Kids tend to see the World in an untainted, innocent, and imaginative way, something we as adults can easily lose out on. No wonder why Jesus said, “Let the children come to me”. Down below are interview questions we recently asked a group of kids running around our YWAM base.
Some of the answers are hilarious and others deeply profound, making you wonder, ‘How did they think of that?’ All of these answers are a simple reminder of the joy and simplicity we can have in our relationships with God through childlikeness.
