We invest wisely in children
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19:14 (NKJV)
Children in the church are categorized according to their ages in three groups, which are 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14. Special program have been prepared by the church to make sure that each of these groups is trained spiritually, mentally and physically according to its age.
It is common knowledge to all of us that our children exist in hard and dangerous times. The death rate for our children has shot up compared to any other time in the past. At present we also have a high number of children who are living in hard condition, orphans and other who are used to perform evil tasks. These evil acts include world music, distributing drugs and fighting. Satan is doing this knowing that by destroying them, he would also have succeeded in uprooting the church of tomorrow.
If any nation or church is to thrive it needs to do the following to his children:-
- The children need love from those who look after them
- They need good health
- They need respectable upbringing
- They need to enjoy their childhood
- Their daily physical needs have to be met
- Finally they need good education
So as to block Satan from destroying the church, MRC has established a special department for children to deal with their problems while in the church and outside it. While a lot of money is spent on adult’s believers in many churches, MRC has decided to invest much on children. Children are the treasurer of the church, if it is not protected it will perish carrying the church with it.
That man of wisdom in the bible was right when he wrote the following words to show the importance of investing on our children. “Train the child in a way he should go, and when his old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6 any ministry that has no well trained children is just like a drought stricken jungle which is destroyed by fire. Show me a deep rooted ministry and I will show you an army of trained children in that ministry!
