Reason #33 - It Helps People Of All Ages Develop Christian And Moral Character
But let the Lord Jesus Christ take control of you, and don’t think of ways to indulge your evil desires. (Romans 13:14)
The following article appeared some years ago in a Christian magazine:
People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered. Love them anyway!
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway!
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway!
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway!
The biggest people with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest people with the smallest minds. Think big anyway!
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for some underdogs anyway!
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway!
Doing the right thing should not be thought of as an option, it should be the thing that every Christian does without thinking. Why? Because we know it is the right thing to do and it’s what Jesus expects us to do as we follow his example. These are things that every person who attends Sunday school should have learned from a very early age!
Questions To Think About: Other than in Sunday school and the church, where are today’s children and youth learning how to develop good moral character? Why is it important for them to develop good moral character while they are young?
Prayer Suggestions: Pray for the youth of your church and Sunday school.
A Call To Action: Use your social media contacts to share a word of encouragement with someone who is waiting for an answer to their prayers.
