Nursery rhymes; aww how refreshing. Makes you feel like a child again. Whether you learned them as a kid, or you’re teaching them to your children, they never go out of style. Let’s see how many I can remember:
- Hickory Dickory Dock
- I’m a Little Tea Pot
- Old McDonald
- The Wheels on the Bus
- Humpty Dumpty
- Itsy Bitsy Spider
Mary and the little lamb whose fleece was white as snow, means more to me than just a poem for kids. In my mind it’s symbolic.
The virgin Mary did have a little lamb; the Lamb of God. He was as white as snow (Sin free.) It’s only when the humans that God created in the Garden of Eden, sinned that Jesus had to leave His Heavenly Home to live on this earth. Lambs were usually used as a sacrifice for sin. Jesus had to settle the issue of sin once and for all. He became the ultimate sacrifice for sin.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16.
Wow!! I never put the 2 together; the nursery rhyme and the ultimate sacrifice for sin. Thank you Lord for allowing Mary to give birth to the Lamb of God, so that we do not have to die in our sin.
