Train up a child

Over the course of this last holiday we have had the privilege of hosting a Children's Holiday Club. It was so heart-warming to see all the children having loads of fun and learning all sorts of things. The theme was 'Survivor', based on the hit TV series, and the kids learnt about how to 'Survive' as Christians in the 'jungle' of Life.

It struck me again how
important it is to teach Children the things of faith while they are young. As we get older we complicate faith and Christianity in so many ways, but the beauty of kids, is that they love God unreservedly.

  • Proverbs 22:6 -Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.

This is not a guarentee that our kids will walk in the ways of Jesus, but at least they would have heard of the Gospel and of God's grace.

A huge thank you to all the Leaders and to Kim who arranged it all - you all have outdone yourselves.

Luke 18:16-17
"Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.”

Living in Grace
