Out of the Mouths of Babes - Letters to Pastors from Children

Letters to Pastors from Children

Many of us wonder, is it okay to question and sometimes wonder about God?” The answer is yes! God loves it when his children, both young and old, ask questions.

Questioning God is not unbelief. It’s the sign of a healthy, curious human mind! That’s why it's ok for children and grown ups to ask God questions and approach their parent or Pastor who can answer their questions biblically.

God loves a curious mind and a seeking heart. At one time or another, we’re all like the early believer who cried, “And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.” (Mark 9:24)

Below are letters that children have written to their pastor.

Dear Pastor:

Please say in your sermon Peter Peterson has been a good boy all week. I am

Peter Peterson. Sincerely, Pete, age 9 

Are there any devils on earth? I think there may be one in my class.—Carla, age 10 

I know God loves everybody but He never met my sister. Yours Sincerely, Arnold, age 8 

I’m sorry I can’t leave more money in the plate, but my father didn’t give me a raise in my allowance. Could you have a sermon about a raise in my allowance? Love Patty, age 10 

My mother is very religious. She goes to lay bingo at church every week even if she has a cold. Your truly, Annette, age 9 

I would like to go to Heaven someday because I know my brother won’t be there.—Stephen, age 8

I think a lot more people would come to your church if you moved it to Disneyland.—Loreen, age 9

Please say a prayer for our Little League team. We need God’s help, or a new pitcher. Thank you, Alexander, age 10 

My father says I should learn the Ten Commandments. But I don’t think I want to because we have enough rules already in my house.—Joshua, age 10 

How does God know the good people from the bad people? Do you tell Him or does He read about it in the newspapers? Sincerely, Marie, age 9 

I liked your sermon on Sunday. Especially when it was finished.—Ralph, age 11 

I hope to go to Heaven some day but later than sooner. Love Ellen, age 9 

My father should be a minister. Every day he gives us a sermon about something.—Robert, age 11

“And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?

Matthew 21:16
