What a beautiful April morning the Lord has blessed us with. This month, Fairview Baptist Church is focusing on building the Sunday School.
So often we say "its so hard" when we think about having to wake up on a Sunday morning and get ready for Sunday School. But is it hard to wake up early when we are heading to our favorite sporting event or amusement park?
We need to focus on getting past the thought "it's too hard". The things in today's society are always looking for the easy way out. We want to make things easier to do and understand. This can even lead to changing the format of our worship service and as far as changing the format of the Bible. But we must consider what God wants us to do. We mustn't want to make things easy when we serve and modernize or compromise Gods word.
What God wants is not always going to be easy or convenient. Some time we may need to make a difficult decision in our life either for ourselves or our family. We don't have to consider what will be the easiest, most convenient or what every one else is doing. Just because everyone else is doing it, doesn't make it right. The world wants us to follow our hearts, but we must be careful, the heart can be deceitful and we must always follow the heart of God.
Its our responsibility to pass down the teaching of God, and what better way to start than with Sunday School? We must stay focused on what God desires and its not Gods desire for us to take the easy way out. Its going to take work and sacrifice. The decisions we make will affect generation after generation after generation. What we do in moderation, our Children will do in excess!
