Children’s Sunday Sermon
Good morning boys and girls. Have you ever heard someone say, “You can be anything, or you can do anything as long as you put your mind to it?” What does this mean? It means if you set a goal for yourself and keep your mind focused on that goal, you can accomplish just about anything! Awesome! Maybe some of you already know what you would like to be when you grow up. Can I see a show of hands for those who would like to be a doctor? How about a lawyer, a police officer, or a firefighter? How about a carpenter, like Jesus was as a young man. Well, guess what, boys and girls. Many of you will realize your dreams, but only if you put your mind to it. Only if you study hard and follow your plan. In a similar way, Jesus is asking you to set your heart to a certain goal. Jesus has a plan for you that you can find right here in your Holy Bible. If you put your heart to His command to love one another, He has promised that you can accomplish your goal of being close to God here on earth. If you put your heart into His instruction to share with those who have less than you, then you can accomplish your goal to be a faithful follower of Jesus. If you put your heart into all the things that He has asked of you, then you can have the happiness in life that comes only when you accept Jesus’ offer to give you peace of soul.
Boys and girls, it is true that you can accomplish many goals in life if you work hard and put your mind to it. But more importantly, you can become the person Jesus wants you to be if you will only put your heart to it! Awesome!
