“Children are the church of the future.”
We hear that statement a lot. And it is true. But we need not to overlook another truth: children are part of the present church.
Elisha, through the power of God, destroyed a group of children that mocked him.
This tells us two things:
1)children have an affect on those around them
2)God takes children seriously
Teach children the ways of The Lord. Wrap them up in prayer. Welcome them as workers in the kingdom of God.
II Kings 2:23-24
