"Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
And who ever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. “
Johnny's Mother looked out the window and noticed him "playing church" with their cat.
He had the cat sitting quietly and he was preaching to it. She smiled and went about her work. A while later she heard loud meowing and hissing and ran back To the open window to see Johnny baptizing the cat in a tub of water.
She called out, "Johnny, stop that! The cat is afraid of water!"
Johnny looked up at her and said, "He should have thought about that before he joined my church."

In the fear of the LORD one has strong confidence, and his children will have a refuge. [Proverbs 14:26 ESV]
Fathers set the tone for their household. Make sure your God is at the center of your family.
And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” [Joshua 24:15 ESV]
The chief job of a father is to teach his kids biblical wisdom at all times.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. [Deuteronomy 6:6-9 ESV]
Always remember that children are a blessing from God.
Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. [Psalms 127:3-5 ESV]
Find your parenting strength in God.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” [Joshua 1:9 ESV]
Teach your children to lead their live based on a biblical worldview.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. [Proverbs 22:6 ESV]
The way you lead your life can be a blessing to your kids. Lead a godly life.
The righteous who walks in his integrity– blessed are his children after him! [Proverbs 20:7 ESV]
A good father disciplines his son out of love and with love.
My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights. [Proverbs 3:11-12 ESV]
Do not provoke your children.
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. [Ephesians 6:4 ESV]
Parenting is a temporary stewardship. Marriage is forever. The best thing you can do for your kids is to be a good husband.
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. [Genesis 2:24 ESV]
God cares about the relationship between fathers and their kids.
And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the land with a decree of utter destruction.” [Malachi 4:6 ESV]

Last Sunday evening, our youth group did the ministering the entire service. They rose to the challenge of leading in prayer, praise and preaching. They shared a powerful skit about the power of sin and the freedom that only Christ can bring and was a great reminder to us how to be sensitive to the needs of those around us.
Some youth led in the singing and a few gave a word of encouragement from the Bible. We are proud of our youth and the way the Lord is working in their lives. We are looking for great things to come from them!
