As parents, we invest so much in the wellbeing of our children because we expect to be able to give them what maybe we could not have.
We build dreams for their future. We plan in every way possible for their school years. We think about their adulthood, when they will start dating, have a family of their own. All in all, we plan well into the future.
We do it in a way as if we had the power to make everything happen just as we plan or dream.
We end up forgetting that as soon as they understand themselves as human b
eings they will make their own choices.
Some of them good, others not so wise and they will have to live with the result of their choices. As we will too, as their parents.
This is the reason why we should invest far more in their spiritual and emotional growth rather than try to set aside wealth for their future.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Prov 22:6)
Our Sunday School plays a very important role in complementing parents’ discipline because we envisage teaching our children to choose according to the Word of God.
If they attend our church services, they may not fully comprehend the message that is mostly aimed at adults.
In our Sunday School the message is conveyed in an interesting manner, through games, charts, pictures, puzzles, drama and other tools that are more fitting for their level of understanding.
All that is required is that you arrive at church a little earlier and enrol your child in the Sunday School.
Believe me, this is a true investment in their future. Whatever they learn Sunday after Sunday will be important for the rest of their lives.
