|With Jesus as Lord, we share His Love... and teach the children to love and obey His ways.|
The project of supporting the education of Salma and Rubal was an idea that the kids came up with last year. The kids, of course, are wanting to save the world and everyone in it; that's their job: they're are kids, and should feel that way. I want to encourage the kids to "save the world", but in their spiritual education, I want them to be focused on the individual souls in this world, and not the Earth itself. Not that the Earth isn't important, I believe it is our responsibility to be good stewards of what God has given us, and that includes the environment. But the scriptures are clear in telling us that people are infinitely more important to God than animals or foliage.
The idea of the children giving of their own money is a way to plant the concept of giving with a purpose. If the kids merely pass the money you give them on, what will they learn? That mom & dad are the givers. But if they give of their own money, then they will begin to understand the command that God has given us: To give out of the abundance of our hearts.
Would you help with this? Thanks, and if you have any questions, please call me.
