Recently I discovered KidsonMission.com and I'm pretty sure it may be one of my favorite websites.
I deeply want my kids to know the Lord and walk with Him. But not just be Christians in a little Christian bubble living as consumers. I want them to live on mission. I want them to live as though this life were about Jesus and making Him known.
But here's my problem. I know college ministry. It's what I've done for 12 years. And though we try to include our kids as much as we are able, it just seems they can't really be effective in the ministry we do till they get older. That's the temptation, to think kids have to grow up first before they can live missionally. And I just know that isn't truth, but honestly since I just don't understand kids ministry I have no idea on how to help them live missionally.
That's why I love Kids on Mission. They know how and not only teach me, but show me and give me everything I need to help give my kids opportunities to serve now, not have to wait till their older. And reality is stated well in Philemon 6 "Be active in sharing the gospel that you might know everything good thing you have in Christ."
When people get to see God use them for eternal purposes in causes something click, it's the most rewarding sense of fulfillment there is. I want my kids to have that. I want them to be able to store up treasure starting when they are young, not have to wait till they are old. I want them to have many experiences with the Lord of getting to see God use them. So I praise God for Kids on Mission in providing their incredible resources!
