Attendance of Children in Public Worship - Jeremy Walker

Posted by Scott T. Brown on Apr. 15, 2014

Here is an excellent article by Jeremy Walker on the matter of children in church:


The church is not exempt from responsibility: we should declare with David the fear of the Lord to the children of the church, and seek to manifest the same tender regard for them, and insight into their upbringing, as Christ and his apostles


“Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.” (Ps 34.11) “From childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” (2 Tim 3.15).

The constant presumption of Scripture is that children were present in the worship of the people of God. In Nehemiah’s time, men and women and all those who could hear with understanding gathered to hear Ezra the scribe read the Law (Neh 8.1-3; Ezr 10.1). Moses certainly anticipated the literal ‘children’ of Israel to be present when the Law was read (Dt 31.12-13). Paul’s letters, intended to be read to the churches, assume the intelligent presence of children (Eph 6.1-4; Col 3.20), and children were present when the Lord Jesus taught (Mt 18.1-5; 19.13-15).

Observe that this is an intelligent presence. It is neither a merely formal nor a distracted attendance. Moses’ desire was that ‘the children may hear . . . and learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully observe all the words of this law’ (Dt 31.12). In Neh 8.1-3 ff., there is active participation and response in hearing the reading and explanation of the book of the Law. The children present are intelligently involved in what is going on. Moses wanted parents to be ready to answer knowledgeable questions from their children arising from the worship (Dt 6.20-25); Joshua wanted Israel to take advantage of the natural inquisitiveness of children (Jos 4.5-7)...
