“When Jesus saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” (Matt. 9:36)

How do we see our world and the people of the world? I must admit that at times I feel like the Disciples and say Lord “rain down fire in your wrath”, when faced with all the injustice, deception, greed and the rottenness of humanity. But not so with Jesus.

In Genesis 2:15 we read that after God created man he placed him in the Garden to work and take care of it. After the Fall, God said to Adam that he will work hard and will cultivate food through painful toil and by the sweat of his brow. (Gen. 3:17 – 19). In the New Testament Paul makes a thought-provoking statement when he said that if a man is unwilling to work then he shall not eat (2 Thes. 3:10).

Equipping the saints…

So – how old must a saint – child of God – be before we give them some serious attention?? We at SCBS were deeply challenged at our last week of Bible School when a couple from a Children’s Ministry in Gauteng, shared God’s heart about children with us. Some comments were made about the church in Africa repenting about sincere error in their view of children. Didn’t even our Lord in his ministry on earth often refer to little ones or even called a child into their midst and taught His disciples important life lessons? Our hearts were touched when we were guided in leading young ones into the very presence of God. Indeed – anybody in Christ – no matter what age – can hear the Shepherd’s Voice and work with Him to touch lives. We will do good to acknowledge and treat children as the church of today – and not of the future. Together we are His Body!!
