The way Jesus wants us to influence the next generation is very different than how the world is doing it. The world’s version of parenting means that children are seen and not heard. The world wants the kids to be tied to “stuff” and to feel like everything is fair. Parents want to control their kid’s destinies as if they are in charge. But Jesus says, “Let the children come unto me.” He has a very easy approach to children. Whether you have children or not, you have an opportunity to impact the next generation for Jesus. He calls us to touch and bless the children. He wants us to love them and lead them like he loves and leads us. If that’s what needs to happen, what needs to change in your life?
Jesus didn't lead people into a classroom to learn more than they were willing to live. He led broken people on the road to bump into other broken people who needed to know him. In this series we will follow Jesus and his disciples through their journey on the road at the beginning of his ministry.
