Kids Matter

Read this on my Purpose Driven email, it was worth sharing...

As adults, we tend to focus on what we can teach children. But what about what they can teach you? Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3). You need children in your life. They help you grow.

You can’t be all that God wants you to be without children. It’s not possible. Children teach you how to be unselfish. It’s hard to be selfish when you have children who depend upon you.

You don’t need to be a parent to have kids in your life, though. Your community has plenty of children who need a caring adult in their lives. Be a Big Brother or Big Sister. Get involved in the children’s ministry or youth ministry at your church. There’ll never be a time in your life when you don’t need to have kids around.

You’ll make a difference in the lives of kids when you do.

And they’ll make a difference in your life, too.
