The children in the picture below are learning how to write their names! At a young age already, we need to give these children the tools they need to develop good writing skills and foster a love of learning. What little boys and girls don’t love to have something fun to write with; but we need to EQUIP them with these tools.
Just the same, we need to equip these children with the tools they need to develop habits of spending time with the Lord. More than 66% of young people today are walking away from the church. We cannot do this world without God. We are fortunate at Immanuel, to teach these kiddos about God’s Word AND the academic skills they need–WHAT A WONDERFUL RESPONSIBILITY!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord, not for man…It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
I think almost everyone can agree that they have at one time or another felt frustrated with their line of work, don’t feel appreciated or feel they work harder than everyone else does and don’t receive the same credit. Students may have a bad attitude toward schoolwork or don’t want to do the chores mom and dad give them. But if we think about it, we aren’t working for fanfare or equality. We’re working for the Lord. No matter what you’re doing, you can be used to serve God’s kingdom! Thankfully, our heavenly reward is not based on our performance but God’s grace and the job He did for us!
In everything we do, we can rejoice in the fact that we have an eternal inheritance; and the work we do here is done out of gratefulness and a desire to serve our God!
