Then there was the time that a ten-year-old says loudly at church, "well that sucked."
I hope the Lord forgives me for repeating that word. I tried to make it clean, Lord!
The bottom line, kids repeat what they see and hear. Hopefully and prayerfully, we can reteach them the right way! But, we need help of the community/church as well. Because these kids aren't with us 24/7.
Numbers 11: 17
I will come down and talk to you there. I will take some of the Spirit that is upon you, and I will put the Spirit upon them also. They will bear the burden of the people along with you, so you will not have to carry it alone.
God meant for the community/church to help carry the burden of the lost people.
Remember that you molded me like clay. Will you now turn me to dust again?
Jeremiah 18: 6
O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
Isaiah 44: 13
The carpenter measures with a line and makes an outline with a marker; he roughs it out with chisels and marks it with compasses. He shapes it in human form, human form in all its glory, that it may dwell in a shrine.
