In these times of high unemployment, a failing government and economy, starvation and fear of the future it is hard enough for adults to deal with these problems of the day. Today children are much more aware of what goes on in the world and how it might affect them. Along with adult problems they also deal with their own problems in their neighborhoods, school and sometimes in homes. These problems could be a parent without a job, a bully in the neighborhood or a drug dealer at school. So you see children have many things that they deal with everyday just like the adults. Because of these day to day problems it is imperative that children know who they can depend on.

Many times I think children equate Jesus with a “super hero” cartoon character. The hero in cartoons always “saves the day” in times of trouble. Well Jesus can save the day but He is so much more. Children need a personal relationship with Jesus.  Oh sure, it won’t be as an adult relationship with Jesus. But Sunday School can be the beginning of learning how to start that relationship with Jesus. The children will learn who Jesus is, learn about His word, the Bible and that they can trust Him to take care of them and their needs. They can begin to build their faith in Jesus even at a young age.

In Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) in the Bible it says that we must “Train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it”. We must “sow the seeds” now while they are young. Our children need to know the difference between cartoon hero’s and Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God!

The Bible also speaks about a time when Jesus was on earth and children were brought to Him to pray for them. The Disciples rebuked those that brought the children to Jesus. But Jesus said “Let the Children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these” Matt 19:13-14 (NIV). I think this applies to us today. Bring your children, grandchildren, neighborhood children, friend’s children and give them the opportunity to meet Jesus through His word and help build their faith in him. Oh by the way…their parents and older siblings would be welcome in the Adult and Teen Sunday School Classes. We will be looking for you in Sunday School.
