Children Are Your Tomorrow. Sermon and prayer points by pastor E A Adeboye

Deuteronomy_6-7: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Memorise

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

Read: Genesis 18:7-9
7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetch a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.
8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.

The greatness of a person can be influenced by a father-figure – whether biological or spiritual. No wonder the Bible in Proverbs 17:6 says:
“Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.”
A child is expected to be a better version of his or her parents. Your child is supposed to be a new, improved you. Your child is your future, hence, losing your child amounts to losing your future, while gaining your child is gaining your future. You can lose your child not necessarily to death but to sin. An unsaved or backslidden child erodes the future of his parents. This is why you must invest in your children. They are your tomorrow. I cannot understand why a parent will be competing with his or her child. How can a father say that he does not want any of his children to surpass him? If your children cannot surpass you, then you have failed. That is why Jesus in John 14:12 says:
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
You must do everything legitimately possible to prepare your children to have a better tomorrow.

Some parents do not mind playing “Father Christmas” with other people’s children, but they remain stingy and tight fisted with their own children. A man who was trained by his parents or relatives to secondary school level who now refuses to train his own children to at least that same level is a curse to his family. Some parents do not mind spending money to buy expensive clothes for weddings, funerals and other frivolous things, but when it comes to paying the school fees of their children, they will say they have no money. What are your priorities in life? Did your children beg you to bring them to this world? Why would you neglect them after bringing them to earth? Do you know that there are very many unbelievers who never had the opportunity of going to school, particularly women, who resolved in their heart to see that their children would be educated, and God made a way for them? Today, they have made graduates out of petty trading. How can it be said of you – a believer, created in the image of God and blessed with children of destiny, that you denied your children quality education? Far be it from you! Ensure you prepare your children for a better future. You cannot afford to disappoint God in this area!

 

1-John_4-4: Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Key Point

The greatest legacy you can give your children is first Jesus, followed by a good education up to university level. Others are extras.

  1. Endow the king with your justice, O God,
    the royal son with your righteousness.
    2 May he judge your people in righteousness,
    your afflicted ones with justice.

    3 May the mountains bring prosperity to the people,
    the hills the fruit of righteousness.
    4 May he defend the afflicted among the people
    and save the children of the needy;
    may he crush the oppressor.
    5 May he endure[a] as long as the sun,
    as long as the moon, through all generations.
    6 May he be like rain falling on a mown field,
    like showers watering the earth.
    7 In his days may the righteous flourish
    and prosperity abound till the moon is no more.

    8 May he rule from sea to sea
    and from the River[b] to the ends of the earth.
    9 May the desert tribes bow before him
    and his enemies lick the dust.
    10 May the kings of Tarshish and of distant shores
    bring tribute to him.
    May the kings of Sheba and Seba
    present him gifts.
    11 May all kings bow down to him
    and all nations serve him.

    12 For he will deliver the needy who cry out,
    the afflicted who have no one to help.
    13 He will take pity on the weak and the needy
    and save the needy from death.
    14 He will rescue them from oppression and violence,
    for precious is their blood in his sight.

    15 Long may he live!
    May gold from Sheba be given him.
    May people ever pray for him
    and bless him all day long.
    16 May grain abound throughout the land;
    on the tops of the hills may it sway.
    May the crops flourish like Lebanon
    and thrive[c] like the grass of the field.
    17 May his name endure forever;
    may it continue as long as the sun.

    Then all nations will be blessed through him,[d]
    and they will call him blessed.

    18 Praise be to the Lord God, the God of Israel,
    who alone does marvelous deeds.
    19 Praise be to his glorious name forever;
    may the whole earth be filled with his glory.
    Amen and Amen.

    20 This concludes the prayers of David son of Jesse.
