"The Bible Tells Me So!"

"Jesus loves me, this I know, For the Bible tells me so."
MAE was singing her favorite song as she played happily on the doorstep. Suddenly she stopped singing, and sat quietly thinking.
"Mother!" she called in a few moments. "May I have a needle and thread?"
"Why, yes, dear! But what do you want a needle and thread for?"
"Oh, I have to sew!" Mae answered.
A little later mother peeped at her daughter busy with her sewing, her little fingers clumsily trying to do their best. As she worked she was still singing her song to herself,
"Jesus loves me, this I know, For the Bible tells me so."
"You are such a busy little girl today," Mother said, smiling.
"Yes, I am," answered Mae. "I have to sew because the Bible tells me sew," and she sang the line of her song to explain it to her mother.
Are you smiling as you read of Mae’s mistake? I wonder if we are as anxious to do what the Bible tells us to do as Mae was, even though she was mistaken?
"The Bible tells me so!"
What are some of the things the Bible tells me? "Seek ye the Lord while He may be found" (Isa. 55:66Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: (Isaiah 55:6)). "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 16:3131And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (Acts 16:31)).
For boys and girls who are saved, it says many things, "Draw nigh unto God." "Keep thyself pure." "Children, obey your parents in the Lord." "In everything give thanks," and many other things.
When you sing "Jesus loves me" again, remember little Mae who was so eager to do what the Bible told her to do!
"Jesus loves me, this I know
For the Bible tells me so!
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak, but He is strong
Yes, Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me,
Yes, Jesus loves me,
The Bible tells me so!"
