This past Sunday I got the opportunity to spend some time throwing the football around with two volunteers and a few kids at Cambridge Apartments in Winston-Salem. Towards the end of the visit we gathered the children together for a devotion and we talked about examples of everyday sins. Calling someone a bad name, being disobedient and not listening to your mama to name a few. We discussed how "The Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins." The children were reminded that forgiveness is available to everyone who is willing to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.
I shared a story with the kids from a book called "The Shed That Fed a Million Children." In that book it talks about a teacher in a village that writes a question on the blackboard for the students to answer. The question was "What do you have to offer the Lord?" When I asked that question to the children at the apartment complex a 2nd grader spoke up and said "My Life." That is one smart 2nd grader!
