Children are targeted and attacked like never before. The devil tries to sow destruction among children through things such as: SUBSTANCE ABUSE; PHYSICAL ABUSE AND VIOLENCE.
The church cannot just sit back and relax, merely watching these things happen. We need to fight back! We must claim back the ground the devil has stolen from us. Matthew 9:38 clearly states that workers are needed to bring in the harvest when the harvest is ready.
In Deut. 6 we see where Moses speaks to the nation of Israel before they enter into the Promised Land and in his address he stresses the importance of the whole community taking up responsibility for the upbringing of their children. To teach them God’s ways and introduce them to Who He is.
There is also an old African saying: “It takes a village to raise a child!” This implies that you and I have a responsibility to become involved on some or other level with the mentorship and upbringing of children.
