What would happen if every man in the church made it a point to greet the children and tell them how excited they were to see them in church?
Imagine a young boy who’s dad has checked out on him. He comes to church on the weekend and seven or eight men act excited to see him.
Imagine a young girl who’s dad hasn’t affirmed her in a while. She walks into church and is the center of attention, at least for a short time, for several men.
Imagine if I did that for your kids and you did that for mine!
In addition to a hoppin’ kids ministry that would be an INCREDIBLE investment in the lives of our children!
Imagine a place where children are affirmed multiple times within an hour by adult men!
Men, the next time you go to church… make it a point to affirm a child! It’s easy and has the potential to positively influence that child for life!
P.S. Women can certainly do this too!
P.S.S. Thanks to Rob Vogelmann for this great idea!
P.S.S. I am not naive in writing this post. I realize that there are some men (and women) who should not be a part of this for obvious reasons. This is another reason why godly men SHOULD pay attention to our kids!
