Is There Anything You Can Do to Disciple Our Kids?

April 19th, 2017 | John Chandler

A “disciple” is simply a learner.

We’re all called to be disciples. Those of us a little further down the road have the opportunity to disciple others.

One is the most obvious opportunities (especially at Austin Mustard Seed) is the opportunity to disciple our kids.

Whether you have are a parent, aunt, uncle or friend, you have the opportunity to help disciple our kids. This can be intimidating. Where do you even start?

One time, Jesus’ teaching was interrupted by eager parents who wanted him to pray for their kids.

Jesus response?

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Even if you aren’t a parent or a teacher, you can be like Jesus: present, available and excited to interact with our kids.

That’s where their discipleship starts.

Our next Family Meeting is Sunday, April 23 from 4-6 pm. April Karli has led an effort to interview all of us who interact with kids.

Her team will share their favorite stories and dreams about what we can each do to love and serve our kids.

The meeting will take place at the home of Levi, Abel and Ava Summers, 2200 Langford Cove.

Dinner will not be provided, but bring fruits and vegetables to share.
