When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Proverbs 4:12

How many times have you observed a child running after a ball into the busy street, or so caught up playing tag and running without thought for their safety to dodge and avoid being caught? In these situations, you were probably amazed at how their swiftness and adeptness helped to keep them from tripping or falling into potential harm or oncoming danger. Right before our eyes we beheld the invisible forces of discharged angels keeping them from peril. Invisible yet mighty superpowers dispatched 24/7 to watch over those in their custodial care.

As an adult, consider yourself that visible force that God has entrusted the duty of watchful guardianship and imparting wisdom to the young.  Every encounter with a child is an opportunity to minister. That is the motive behind Children’s Ministries.  Gently teaching a child how to respond with good manners, and how to never give up on loving themselves after they have been bullied. Patiently instructing a child how to ride a bike, tie their shoelaces or put their toys away neatly.

Even when you think you’re not involved in ministering to children, you are.  Children are always observing and cognizant of their environment and surroundings.  They see you interacting with others and pick up on acceptable or unacceptable verbal and non-verbal cues.  They notice that new suit or new car and without you realizing, they become your secret admirers. Children’s Ministries.  Every one of us are ministers assisting our young to not stumble.  And don’t think for a moment that your duty is without its reward for “as you did it to the least of these, you did it unto Me.”
