Grateful for Family and Friends

During COVID-19, God has allowed me to take the time to reflect, and He has shown me a lot. He showed the areas I need to improve upon, like spending more time with Him through reading the Word. One of the habits I have improved on is taking each morning to pray to God. I give thanks for being able to see another day and continue the purpose God has set out for me, and I read a short devotional to conclude.

I am reminded of all the blessings the Lord has given to me in my life. I was able to travel to two different countries, graduate during a pandemic, find a supportive church home through KCC, and so many other extraordinary things. None of it would be possible without the encouragement of my family, friends, and God.

To My Family:

My mom and dad have always wanted to experience and explore the world in ways they did not get the chance to do. They have supported me financially to study abroad, help pay for undergrad, and provide necessities. They have given me unconditional love through good and bad times. My family is the one who will have my back, especially during tough situations. They have shown me how to give back to others regardless of the circumstances they are in. They helped me learn right from wrong through earthly and heavenly examples. They are one of the many influences that shaped me into the person I am today.

To My Heavenly Father:

I am grateful for Him always walking beside me through valleys and mountains. I am thankful that He sent His only son to die so we could live again. I am grateful that HIs love endures forever. He has forgiven me of all my sins. There are too many things that He has done for me, my family, and friends. There are too many blessings to count.

To My Friends:

I am happy that God has led me to them. They have found many ways to make me laugh. They helped me find the positives out of the negatives. They helped me shape my interests and ideas of the world around me. My friends embraced who I am, like God and my family. They stayed up late at night with me to study or talk about anything. They gave me advice about my situation. They were another group to which I could relate.

I am thankful to every person who has come into my life and helped me become a better person.

The role of children

Contributor: K. Wyatt

There is an old saying that states it takes a village to raise a child. Well, once that child is raised, it is up to them to become a part of the village that will raise the next generation of children. Adults and parents are responsible for instilling positive values and beliefs in children. But those children, even as adults, have the responsibility of using what was taught to them to become functioning members of society. 

Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) states, “start children off the way they should go, and even when they are old, they will not turn from it.” It is a child’s job to learn, play, grow, and make mistakes. The mistakes that children make are what turns them into the individuals who will lead in the future. Of course, a parent or another responsible adult is the one teaching them right from wrong. A child will not know stealing is bad until someone tells them it is. But once they know better, it is up to them to do better. 

First Corinthians 13:11 (NIV) states, “when I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” Even children who do not have a good upbringing or have positive role models have the same responsibility. Psalm 27:10 (ESV) states that “for my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in.” All children must find their way to God and spread love and His Word to the next generation. Then those children will spread it to the next generation (Joel 1:3), whether this is through biological reproduction or spiritual mentorship. 

Today’s children play a large role in what the children of the next generation will be like.
