The wolf shall live with the lamb,
the leopard shall lie down with the kid,
the calf and the lion and the fatling together,
and a little child shall lead them. Isaiah 11.6

- If you could describe your childhood in three words, what would they be?
- “A little child shall lead them”. Jesus didn’t come as a mighty warrior, but as a little child. What difference should that make to Christian faith?
- What lead might the children in our lives and our world be trying to give us today? How can we listen to them better?
