Planting Kids in Good Soil
Sunday was “Compassion Sunday” here at Blackhawk as we talked about the amazing opportunity to we have to join the fight against physical and spiritual poverty through the organization Compassion International. 32 kids were sponsored with another 25 families praying about doing it!!! I was overwhelmed with the response and really thankful for our Blackhawk family!
This week as I have been thinking about what I shared in the service about planting kids in good soil. Although what I shared was in the context of kids through Compassion, it dawned on me that I am often talking to parents here about making sure that they are doing things that help dig deep spiritual roots for their kids. Kids need more than to just attend church on Sundays to truly understand what it means to follow Christ. They need to be building experiences and patterns that allow them to learn that God is a part of their every day life.
Consider sponsoring a Compassion child and not only impacting the life of a child who is in physical and spiritual need but impacting your own children with the reality of what it means to love and care for someone in need. Check them out at www.compassion.com
