I was searching for something online. I believe it was “Beatitudes for children”. I was looking for an easy way to word them without needing to take up so much space with typing them out and wanted the kids to be able to understand them. I came across the “Beatitudes for Children’s Workers”. I loved it and just had to share it because I know so many of you volunteer with kids, teach a religion class or homeschool. Enjoy!!
The Beatitudes for Children’s Workers
Blessed are they who love children with all their heart, for they shall be rewarded with big smiles.
Blessed are they who have planned and prepared, for the children will be interested and pay attention.
Blessed are they who arrive early, for they shall be able to welcome the children at the door with a loving smile.
Blessed are those who get to know their children, their children’s parents, and their children’s home situation; for they shall be able to minister more effectively.
Blessed are those who respect each child’s personality and seek to meet that child on his/her own level of understanding, for young lives shall reap the benefits from these efforts in years to come.
Blessed are they who bear witness to children week after week, for they shall see boys and girls grow in knowledge and love of God.
Blessed are they who spend time alone with God each day, for they shall grow spiritually and the Lord will use them as His instruments.
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for the Lord will honour your commitment and give you pleasure and satisfaction in your ministry to children.
