Easier to carry me

 

 

During the early years of missionary activity in China, four members of one family accepted Christ as Savior, but the youngest, a little boy, did not. Later, he came to his father and said he wanted to receive the Savior and live for Him. The father felt he was not old enough to understand what he was doing, so he explained what it meant to make a commitment to Jesus. He told him that following Christ would not always be easy. The boy gave this touching reply: "God has promised to carry the lambs in His arms. I am only a little boy. It will be easier for Jesus to carry me."

The simplicity and genuineness of that boy's faith made a profound impression on the father, who quickly sensed that his son knew what he was doing. Soon the youngster publicly declared his faith in Christ. -- Daily Bread
