Letters to My Young Readers

TIANA OUDSHOORN — Prom what you wrote in your letter, Tiana, I’m guessing that the singing in the new church really fills the building; am I right? Some of the Psalters speak of this, such as “My song shall still resound...” (Psalter 71), “It is good to sing Thy praises...” (Psalter 251), and “In song lift up your voice...” (Psalter 84). I can think of many words that go together with singing Psalters, such as “reverently,” “attentively,” and “prayerfully.” Can you think of some?

STEPHAN DEN BOER — Grandparents’ Day is a special day at school, isn’t it, Stephan? Did your grandparents enjoy the things you taught them? Sometimes we can show Grandma or Grandpa things they did not learn or have when they were young. Often, though, we can learn things from our grandparents because they are older and know more. What a blessing it is if we see the good books they read or hear the kind warnings they give.

MEGHANN TEN ELSHOP — I received two long letters from you and also from your sister, Meghann. I always like reading about what you are doing. How is the new house developing? I’m sure you were glad Grandma caught Elle. Sparky ran into the road a little while ago, and I was afraid she would be run over by a car. She came right back, though. Do you train Elle? It’s hard to train dogs to stay when a door opens, isn’t it? I think they just want to come along when we leave.

EMILEE TEN ELSHOP — Hello, Emilee. Your friend in Columbia must be happy to be able to go to a Christian school. Did you ever look in magazines that have pictures of people who live in poor countries? Often they don’t have good schools or churches to go to, or the government doesn’t like it when they teach from the Bible. It is good when we try to help them. We have so much, and they have so little. You know how to play quite a few Psalters already. Which one is your favorite?

KATELYNN ENGELSMA — I’m glad you like to listen to Bible stories, Katelynn. When I was young, I always liked the story of Daniel in the lions’ den very much. The history of the Lord Jesus’ death on the cross is certainly an important part of the Bible, isn’t it? When we really think about it, it is hard to understand that such a great and holy God was willing to send His Son to die for a sinful people. Ask the Lord to teach you these things.

AMANDA HERPST — Hi, Amanda. How is your foot doing now? Hopefully the therapy helped. Injuries happen quickly and can take long to heal. Sometimes serious injuries happen. Then we should not only be thankful that it wasn’t worse, but we should also see it as a reminder and a warning. Can you think of some people in the Bible who could not walk at all?

HENRIETTE HEGER — How exciting that your mom is expecting a baby, Henriette! I hope all goes well. It is such a blessing when the Lord gives children. I am sure you can think of many blessings in your home. You are healthy, you have a family, food, a place to live, etc. Try to think of these things and ask the Lord to make you thankful for them.

DEBORAH, TIMOTHY, AND DANIEL PELLEBOER — Thank you for your beautiful picture. I hope the Lord will bless to your hearts the verses you study from the Bible as you are doing the quiz. Only then will they receive a true meaning.

Love,
Aunt LenaBeth
