The innocence of a child…can it be sustained?

God’s Children  |  November 7

Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come…
Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth; walk in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes; but know that for all these God will bring you into judgment.
Therefore remove sorrow from your heart, and put away evil from your flesh, for childhood and youth are vanity.

Ecclesiastes 12:1;11:9-10


Father, when we are young, You advise that we remember You, that we store Your words in our hearts, because, as adults, evil days lay ahead.

Help us assist our children in getting to know You now, while they are still young, before they face temptation on every side. Help us equip them with Core Christian Values. We know that if they have a solid foundation to lean upon they will, by the power of the Holy Spirit, be much more able to resist evil.

Even though childhood and youth may be “vanity”, during these wonderful years when their smiles melt our hearts and their innocence charms us, prepare their hearts to serve You and to trust You in all things. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen

September 27, 2020 Are we required to teach God's word to our kids? September 26, 2020 My heart stands in awe of Your word...Really it does! September 25, 2020 So, how dangerous, in the eyes of God, is it to offend a child? September 24, 2020 You don't know me! I gave money, sang in the choir and on and on. September 23, 2020 I have no gifts...thus I have no responsibilities. Right? September 22, 2020 To be forgiven enables you to forgive September 21, 2020 Am I my brother's keeper...yes, more than I thought. September 20, 2020 Do we have access to "certainty" about eternal matters? September 19, 2020 I slip, too often, but You lift me up, repeatedly September 18, 2020 Your age in heaven? Neither old nor young. Babies? Old people? No.
