The Wisdom of Little Children

Mark 10:14 “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

A first grade teacher collected well-known proverbs.  She gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder.  It’s hard to believe first graders did these.
