Point Little Children to Jesus


Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

-- Matthew 19:14


We will not hide them from their

               children;

     we will tell the next generation

the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD,

     his power, and the wonders he has

               done. 

He decreed statutes for Jacob

     and established the law in Israel,

which he commanded our forefathers

     to teach their children,

so the next generation would know

               them,

     even the children yet to be born,

     and they in turn would tell their

               children. 

Then they would put their trust in God

     and would not forget his deeds

     but would keep his commands. 


-- Psalm 78:4-7


We MUST tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD. So they will know Him and the law He established. In turn, they will tell the next generation. "Then they will put their trust in the LORD." 


Join me in this prayer:


Dear Lord,


Please help us to have childlike character and priorities. Please help us to be good examples to those younger than ourselves, always pointing them to you. Please protect those who are young and vulnerable from the enemy. Show us who we should encourage and come alongside. 


In Jesus Name,


Amen
