Young children can ask the most amazing questions about God and Heaven! And when they do, we shouldn’t ignore them or act like their questions aren’t important – because they are.
When children ask you about God, do your best to answer simply and honestly in terms they can understand. Of course they don’t need deep and complicated answers, but just because they can’t understand everything about God doesn’t mean they can’t understand something about Him. I don’t understand electricity, but that doesn’t mean I can’t turn on a light switch.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
