At WordServe Church, our mission is to guide people to grow as joyful servants of Jesus. One of the best places this can happen is between parents and their children.
Let me tell you a story about “K,” a 5 year old who lives for Christ. Here’s what she’s done so far this Spring:
- Earned $6.00 from her egg business (that’s right… chickens that she feeds before she eats breakfast!)
- Used some of her other money to buy:
– A Washrag
– A Beaded necklace
– A mini rubber duck
Ah, you say… that sounds like a 5 year old… sort of. But combine this list (and the $6.00) with the handwritten note she dropped off, and you have a 5 year old’s version of a care package for a Compassion Child that our church adopted over a year ago. Her money, her time, and her gifts went to a child living in poverty.
One child is richer than most of us because she is loved… sacrificially. And another child humbles us all as she shows us what it means to truly put someone else’s needs above her own.
Sometimes those that we think we’re guiding to grow turn out to be the ones guiding us to grow!
Life is Different! Come and see….
