Last week a church brought me some little chairs and tables that they did not need anymore. I put one by my front door for my grandchildren to sit on while they were visiting. As I looked at that little empty chair, it saddened my heart because I realized there are so many little vacant chairs in our churches today. One reason is that mommy and daddy do not take their children to Sunday school or Church. That could lead to many of those little children never coming to know God personally and when they die they will not enter heaven, (Luke 13:3, Romans 10:14). What does the Bible say about children and God? First, Children are a special gift from God, (Psalm 127:3). Children will not learn about God on their own and parents are given the responsibility and privilege of teaching their children about God, (Deuteronomy 4:10, Ephesians 6:4). This starts first in the home and then continued at a local church, (Deu-teronomy 6:7). The knowledge of God, The Bible, is to be handed down from one generation to the next, (Psalm 78:4&5). There is a promise in the Bible that if we will live the Christian life that it will go well for us and our children, (Deuteronomy 4:40). If we do our part maybe there will not be so many little empty chairs at the church. See you in Church next Sunday.
