Leading Children

Last week my friends Greg and Gina asked a group of fourth and fifth graders how church leaders could best show them God’s way. Here is a sample of the answers they received.

“By encouraging me to be more like Jesus.”

“By being good to people.”

“By helping me to think about God.”

“By helping me to forgive.”

“By answering some of my questions.”

“By helping me learn about God.”

I don’t know of any church leader (or anybody else, for that matter) who doesn’t need to be reminded of these simple but profound ways that we can impact the lives of others.

Thanks for the reminder!
