The law of sowing and reaping is a Biblical principle that governs all reality. The Apostle Paul says in Galatians 6:7 that if you think you can fool God, you are only fooling yourself. You will harvest what you plant in life. Children have been and always will be the key to every culture’s success or failure. Ultimately, those who have invested wisely in children’s lives through godly training and love will reap life and peace whereas those who have invested wickedness and rebellion will reap death and destruction.
You know that really is a hard question at times! I asked myself that question when one day we arrived at one of our Sidewalk Sunday School sites. We had just pulled up to the location when a man at the rear of the building opened a window and began firing an automatic weapon onto the parking lot below. At least ten police patrol cars converged on the Housing Project from three different directions.
At the end of our meetings Children’s Activity Truck we have a time when we pray for the kids. Many of the kids need prayer for school to pass grades and tests. Some have trouble at home with parents who are drug addicts or in jail, sisters who are pregnant or fighting or abuse between family members or neighbors. But one prayer request seems to occur more often than others especially with the younger kids is, “Will you pray for my grandma?”
