God's Will In My Life
There comes a time when we have to decide whether we are going to follow the ways of God or the ways of the world. Some people don't think there is a difference. I found out that there is.
I attend a private, Christian school but I was allowed to play baseball for the public school in our town.
Last year when I played, the kids on the team didn't have very good language at all. They put a bad influence on me. Their attitudes started showing up in me. Dad asked me if I would give up baseball because of the kids on the team. I thought about if for a while. I knew it was the right thing to do, but, I loved baseball. I had played it for five years. I finally decided that it would be better for me if I did not play. After that decision, I realized that I was starting to change. But I still thought about baseball all the time because it was hard to give up.
Then one day I went up to the school to watch a baseball game that I would have been a part of if I would have stayed on the team. There was a big fight between the teams. Parents were yelling...it was a bad situation. I was glad that I was not a part of it. I never regretted not being a part of baseball again.
I didn't want the ways of God stuck in the closet behind the things I used most. I had to bring God's will out and leave the other behind. by Thomas Spearman age 11
The Five Wise and Five Foolish Virgins
Matthew 25:1 - 13 is the parable of the five wise and five foolish virgins. They are examples to us of those who prepare and those who do not prepare for the return of Jesus.
We need to be the example of the wise so that others will start getting prepared and listen to what the Lord has to say. Then when they see us, they can make a decision whether they will put God in the closet and put him last or bring Him out and do what He says. The wise person will be prepared when God comes and be able to stand, but the foolish will miss it. So we need to be the wise and not the foolish se we can enter into His presence.
Psalm 27:1 "The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is my strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?"
God is our path and we need to use it. This is another way we can get prepared to enter into His presence. by Rachel Huff age 9
"And behold I come quickly; and my reward is with me to give every man according as his work shall be." Revelation 22:12
"He which testifieth these things saith Surely I come quickly. Amen. even so come Lord Jesus." Revelation 22:20
It is time to get busy!
God wants us to be clean and good in His sight. He is trying to clean out the closet and get rid of the stuff that we have put before Him. He is coming back for a clean house. We should let Him clean us now! There will be a reward if we do! by Mary Huff age 8
**** TEACHERS ****
Teachers are special. They are very special. We should have respect for them. They don't have to teach us; the could go home. Some kids get mad at their teachers, but we should set the example. Why? Because if they didn't have our example to follow, all they have is the example of the world, and that is the way they will go. by Kyle Abraham age 9
