Sunday, January 23rd, 2011.

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

"Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world."

Many of us learned this song as children, but did you know the real story? The tune was written by George Frederick Root as an 1864 Civil War tune titled “Tramp, Tramp, Tramp, the Boys are Marching." Later the words of “Jesus Loves the Little Children” were written for the tune by one of Root’s favorite lyricists, Clare Herbert Woolston.

How fitting that out of one of the cruelest tests of American history comes a song of simple reconciliation. Children have no problem getting along; however, as adults we start to complicate our lives. Maybe if we were to go back to the basics, we could learn the complex truths of John 3:16:
“For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

"God, thank You for Your love to the world that includes me.

Bro. Bill

Our God is an awesome God.
