October 18: Logos

Be an Example for Every Child, Week Four


Children are vital in the lives of each of us.  We are each called to nurture and invest whether they are our own children, relatives, neighbor children or children that we know from church.  We can each think back to our own childhood experiences and think of an adult that invest in ourselves.  Maybe it was a teacher, friend, or coach.  Maybe they would come to our activities or spend time with us.  Some adult in our lives made sure to impress on our souls that we mattered.  God is calling each of us to the same.  Our children are faced with so many different pressures and challenges but there is a way that the church can be present in the lives of children in a tangible way.  

Through the LOGOS ministry, children experience Kingdom of God living in family time around a shared meal, learn the stories of God in Bible Study, are allowed to share their gifts and talents to praise God in Worship Arts, and get to put into practice treating others as we want to be treated during Recreation. 

John 21:15
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”

(Read the weekly scripture each day. Find a phrase or word that speaks to you. Share your reflections with others over dinner, social media, and in prayer. Share the scripture with a child you know in the car, through a text, or in a children's Bible.)
