Psalms 22:30-31 NLT
Our children will also serve him. Future generations will hear about the wonders of the Lord. His righteous acts will be told to those not yet born. They will hear about everything he has done.
Some of my favorite times are spent in praise with Mia singing songs, praying together, and reading from the Bible and from children’s Bible story books.
It’s encouraging to see her excited about learning more. It also helps to keep me accountable when I realize that she watches everything that we do and say.
Our 4 Kids volunteers do such a great job of showing the kids on Sunday an example of Christ’s loving compassion and teaching them lessons from the Bible that they can apply in their lives. These lessons are so important to Mia’s spiritual development, that we want to supplement this daily at home with prayer, praise, a mix of Christian videos (Veggie Tales), and reading/discussing.
Our children are surrounded by the influences of the world in their daily lives, and we aren’t trying to create a completely sheltered and separated “religious” life – we want Mia to be equipped with the tools she needs for her life ahead, a relationship with Jesus Christ and with other loving believers. It is this relationship that will last the test of time and be passed down generation to generation, because hope, faith, and love overcome and last forever.
