My son confessed to me,
“Mom, I want to be baptized. I believe in Jesus.”
He was 8. Unfortunately, according to the church we were attending, he was not old enough to come to Christ.
I disagreed. In fact, I could rattle off a list of how smart he was; how he was two grades ahead, or how he had already read from Genesis to 1 Samuel in Holy Bible, but did all that really matter? Wasn’t his confession good enough?
 And they brought young children to Him, that He should touch them: and His disciples rebuked those that brought them.  But when Jesus saw it , He was much displeased, and said unto them, “Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” ~Mark 10:13-14 KJV
Verily I say unto you, “Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.” ~Luke 18:17 KJV
So I decided to baptize him. What’s more important?
