Good morning! It is disturbing to me when people say children are the future because it's as if they have no purpose until a certain age. The Lord used children so many times when He couldn't find an adult who was willing to obey Him or do what needed done.
David was a boy when he took on a giant that all the adults were too afraid to fight. Mary was a young teen when she said yes to the call of God on her life to be highly favored among women to be the mother of the Son of God.
Jesus stopped teaching adults to spend time with children because children matter. They matter to God and they should matter to us. Every church should have a thriving youth program that invests in its young people. They are not the future, they are the now because they are alive now.
The future is what is inside of them that has not come to be. We need to value children and invest Jesus into them. We cannot afford to lose another generation to this world of chaos and anti-Christ agendas. We need to value what God values and He deeply cares for children. Let us invest in them in every way possible as we make a great day!
