Currently I am reading “Come Ye Children” by Charles Spurgeon.  This book has a lot of encouragement about having faith for kids coming to Christ at an early age and what it looks like to take seriously the responsibility to train and teach them.  Below is one of my favorite quotes that I’ve come across so far in the book.

“Go on, dear teachers, and believe that God will save your children.  Be not content to sow principles in their minds which may possibly develop after years, but be working for immediate conversion.  Expect fruit in your children why they are children.  Pray for them that they may not run into the world and fall into the evils of outward sin, and then come back with broken bones to the Good Shepherd;  but that they by God’s rich grace be kept from the paths of the destroyer, and grow up in the food of Christ, first as lambs of His flocks, and then as sheep of His hand.”
