and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14

As a child, I desired to be in church. My mother said the place would collapse if she went in. She grew up in a Lutheran church. I am not sure what she learned there, I just witnessed the outcome of the parts she retained. She was afraid she would be punished if she attended again. My mother went on to live a life of drowning her sorrows in excessive drinking, which led to harder predicaments, and to harder substances to keep the pain at bay. My mom is out here somewhere in the world, separate from her family, and most importantly the body of Christ, because she falsely believes her sins require a payment from her. The truth is the payment was made by Jesus Christ. What freedom we deny not only ourselves, but even our children, when we do not know the truth.

I pray for the parents to urge their children on to having a personal relationship with Jesus, not only at Sunday school, but all through the week. Evil seems to be swarming our children and they need to know the truth now, more than ever. There is no greater way to influence our children than to give them a solid foundation upon which they can stand. I pray this for my family, especially my mother, and yours as well from Ephesians 1:17-19 “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,” So much more truth remains. May you grab a hold of the freeing reality; His loving sacrifice covers every sin, not only yours but those of your precious children God has blessed you
with.
