Daniel 12:3 And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.
On a any given Sunday morning there are dozens and dozens of volunteers and servants working with children in three different buildings at Trinity Church. It is my prayer for those working that God would use the children they work with and lead to soften their hearts to God. Along with that softening of their own hearts, I pray that they will be sensitive to each and every child’s need. Everyone would say that they want to be sensitive to the children they work with, but with the chaos of drop-off, dismissal, discipline problems, equipment malfunctions, teacher shortages it can be easy to harden one selves to just “getting through it.”
I pray that the Holy Spirit will make each leader working with children able to easily discern the hearts and situations of the children they work with. It is my prayer that they will not miss a unique opportunity to sow a word of encouragement into the heart of a young child. It is my prayer that they will be able to clearly hear when a child is calling for help, and they will be equiped to answer that call with love, patience, and kindness.
I know that those willing to be kind to a child, will reap a wonderful blessing! May all those that take the time to work with children, take the time to listen to children!
