As you close the door on the last classroom this weekend….clean up the last piece of tinsel and reset rooms for future programs… and drive away from the church building, take this thought with you.
Your gift of service to “the least of these” matters for eternity! The baby you rock in the nursery. The toddler’s nose you wipe clean. The songs you sing with little ones. The Word of God you open up with all ages.
Your yearlong gift—not just at Christmas—to children is seen by a loving God who cared so much about children that he sent his son AS A CHILD!
God values you. God values your service. Know that God sees all the little and big things you do—and God says, “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
And now, just rest. Enjoy the holiday. Read a good book. Eat some cookies (no guilt!) Watch a few movies. And nestle in with your family.
In my next few blogs, I’m going to feature some of my favorite “Heart Matters” columns from Children’s Ministry Magazine. I love the title of this column…it’s got that double message—your heart matters…and these are matters of the heart.
Enjoy! And let God love on you and minister to your spirit!
