Dr. Frederick K.C. Price once wrote: FAMILY: YOUR GREATEST ASSET! Unity in the family of God is of utmost importance to our heavenly Father. His heart’s desire is that we be one; Love each other, encourage each other, fellowship and that we come to each other’s aid. By doing these things, we become a stronger, more powerful entity in this earth realm. Only through unity can we really rule, reign, and advance in the will of God. One thing that is intimately connected to this idea of unity is that as the minister and his family go, so goes the church.

HELLO MORENO VALLEY

While reading a few days ago I read this “Reaching Our Children.” (1) A sense of realness; Our children need to know that we too are real, struggle, and have been where they are. (2) Learn to listen; We have to listen so that we can find out where young people are today. Don’t just speak to the head without addressing the heart. (3) Speak their language; Young people are interested to know if you can identify on their level and within their cultural framework, while not distorting God’s truth. (4) Just be yourself; Don’t think you have to be something you are not in order to reach youth. Let God’s truth, love and grace come through the personality He has gifted you with. (5) Pray; prayerful people are able to minister to youth with power of God’s hand upon them. (6) Speak life; Young people often think life is pointless, has little meaning, and wonder why they are here. We can’t approach by saying words like you are worthless. We have to speak life. (7) Spend time; Children trust and open up when they have spent ample time with a person when you spend no time with them you will not have the key to their heart. That’s many say to children “why didn’t you tell me?” Or “you know you can talk to me about anything,” but they never open up because you never spend time with them. I Timothy 4:12 (NKJV). So many things define this generation but the one thing that stands out the most is “loneliness”; which runs deep. They are home alone and are raised by their music, television, and video games. They will do anything to get a loving feeling, even for one night. A lot of what’s going on sexually isn’t about biology; it’s about feeling close to someone for a few minutes. Maybe your children like mine are grown, but they still need to be close and able to talk to you about anything. Let us remember to pray for our children and let them know we are always close by.

BE BLESSED
