Children truly are a heritage to the Lord and the church has an immense responsibility to raise them in the instruction and discipline of the Lord. This involves teaching our children. This involves sacrifice on the part of parents and the members of the church. Too often, children’s programs in churches and even Christian parents find themselves believing that as long as children are at church or that they have made a profession of faith that they have achieved their goal. Our kids don’t just need to be at church. They need to know the Lord and to be disciplined so they may know how to follow Him in life.
