Zechariah 8: (New International Version 2011)

3 This is what the LORD says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the LORD Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.”

4 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each of them with cane in hand because of their age. 5 The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.”

The LORD is describing a time of good through the prophet Zechariah. Notice the words the LORD uses to describe something good:

The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.

God takes joy in boys in girls playing.

The next time you see boys and girls playing, smile because I believe God is as well.
