“Then Eli realized it was the Lord who had spoken to the child. So he said to Samuel, “Go and lie down again, and if he calls again, say, ‘Yes, Lord, I’m listening.’” So Samuel went back to bed. And the Lord came and called as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel replied, “Speak Lord; your servant is listening.”” (1 Samuel 3:8b-10)
Tomorrow is Universal Children’s Day,
It’s a day to appreciate children for just being themselves and to recognize them as important and valued members of our society.
The day was first suggested in 1954 by the United Nation.
The landmark documents (Declaration of the Rights of the Child & Convention on the Rights of the Child) cover everything from a child’s right to be free from exploitation, to the right to his or her own opinion, and the right to education, health care, and economic opportunity.
The UN says it is “a day to remind us that children need love and respect to grow to their full potential,” and it is “a day to listen to children, to marvel at their uniqueness and all they have to offer.”
Tomorrow, during worship service we will learn about small ways; that every huge biblical event begins in some very small way, starting from creation to the birth of our Christ and Saviour.
We will learn through God’s message how to help our children to express themselves and allow God to shape their future through small ways to the big ones. Come, worship with us. 🙂
A blessing for our children;
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
