It seems that the innate and insatiable curiosity that children have is no accident, God made children to ask questions. The period between Joshua and Judges is a chilling tale of how easily we can fall from a place of victory; all it takes is one generation that fails to answer the questions children ask. God went to great lengths to tell Israel precisely how they were to treat the inevitable questions that children will ask. Whenever their children asked them they were to tell them everything God had done for them. They were to stop their busy occupation to answer these question. It was a very clear instruction. Yet Judges begins by telling us "And all that generation also were gathered to their fathers. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the LORD or the work that he had done for Israel." (Judges 2:10 ESV). In this course our aim is to give ourselves God's perspective on children so that we can better minister to them. But for us to do that we first have to let scripture address our inconsistent and often sentimental attitude toward children.
