I Love Getting to Do What I Do!

I love getting to do what I love to do!
For the last three nights I have had the opportunity to be at our programs honoring graduates!

Sunday night we honored our high school graduates, It was great to hear the parents tell the stories of their children and how they have grown into what they have become at this point in their life.
I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!

Our Pre-school graduation at Spring Meadows Academy was Monday and Tuesday nights. Now it is a big deal to watch these little ones draped in their caps and gowns walk in holding each others hand and the Mom’s and Dad’s armed with cameras taking a photo of every precious moment. I’m glad they do this. Why? It is an important part of life. It is still the age of innocence. The children love each other, their teachers and they have no worries.

Each of these groups received a Bible for their graduation gift, why?

I believe a child needs to receive a Bible at least 4 times in their life.

1. When they are born. They need to cut their teeth on one. They can’t read it but at least they will know what it is!

2. When they enter school (after preschool)! They are learning to read! So Dads and Moms help them learn to read by reading the greatest book in the world!
3. When they become a Christian. What better way to start your life than with a new Bible. Read it! Study it! Obey it! and do it again!
4. When they graduate high school. They need to have a Bible they can carry with them when they go to college or into the next phase of life. It is crucial that they hold fast to the word that has brought them to this point.

When it was announced that each preschool child would receive a Bible, you would have thought you were giving them a million dollars. One little boy when he crossed the stage tonight said out loud “Mr. Jerry this is my first real Bible!” Others couldn’t wait to show their Mom’s and Dad’s and ran out of line to show them! I might have had a tear come into my eye!

It was an honor to give them the greatest book in the world! God’s Word!

I love getting to do what I love to do!
