A lady from the congregation was presenting the children's sermon. She walked up to the front of the church and said, "May I have all of the children?" As the children walked forward, several parents responded, "Yes." One quick-witted father asked, "For how long?"
“Then they also brought infants to Him that He might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”
We see from that passage that children were important to Jesus and there were those that recognized His power and love and they wanted Him to bless their children, so they brought them to Him. “Let them come to me.” Children cannot be ignored or overlooked so they are no longer a priority. Children are important to the Lord! Read that again. It is not a question. They are important to Him and they should be important to us. Your children may be grown, you may have grandchildren and even great grandchildren: this should qualify you to be supportive and involved in children’s ministry. This gives you a great opportunity to use your experience. We need workers in every area of our children’s ministry. From Sunday morning during worship and Sunday School to Wednesday nights in RA’s and GA’s. Pray for our children and workers on a daily basis. Watch for opportunities of service and pray about what God would have you do to help with our ministry to children.
