We’re on the third sermon of the series on Spiritual Growth and Human Development. And today we’re going to think about children between the ages of four and six. And the developmental literature – at least quite a bit of it – calls that “Early School Age.” So that’s what we want to think about today – children between four to six. Do we have any children that age? Are there any children around us that age? Do we know any in this age group? What do those children need to develop a relationship with God? Is there anything that we can do to help them? The older children become, the more contact they have with those outside their home – teachers, coaches, congregational members, ministers, youth workers, whatever. And as they grow older, the more opportunity others have to contribute to their development. Now, to help other people, it’s always good to understand them. And that’s why we’re giving this series – to help adults understand how to help the children they deal with in their daily lives.
