On Saturday night, our junior and senior high youth finished their first ever four night revival. At least a dozen kids came from the back2school event to be part of our ministry for the first time. Seven of them were saved! And then Sunday at The Landing, we used our service to celebrate children with our theme being, "children are a gift from God, a reward from him." For one hour I witnessed children ages 4-18 use their gifts and talents in a way that made God smile and blessed every one in the auditorium. I was like a proud father watching his children be completely successful.
Children are a gift and they are our future. Their God-given dreams and passions need to be nurtured and extracted to bring God glory. And when they are, well you have a moment like I did...a moment where everything is synchronized...your heart beats with love and your spirit rises up to overwhelm you with joy. How many gifts from God are in your life? How many of you have been rewarded more than once. Blessed are the children...talk to God about your kids, then talk to your kids about God!
