We often hear people saying that we
should cherish the children because they are the future
…but are they?
Personally I don’t agree with this statement. Does that surprise you? It may not surprise you quite as much when I tell you why I disagree with this statement…
For me we must cherish the children because they are the present as well as the future!
Yes, until the children are grown up they may not be able to have the impact on our community and society that we would hope, however if we don’t teach them in God‘s ways when they are children, they will never be the adults we, or God need and want them to be.
Deuteronomy 10:12 (NIV)
what does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul
