Give Him Praise!

So many times I have gotten this question’ “How do I teach my child to have a thankful heart”?  It’s a great question especially in today’s fast paced, instantly gratifying society.  Being a mom of three, I completely understand how easy it is to hand the kids my smart phone or tablet to keep them busy.  It’s easy for them to take little things like that for granted because for them it’s everyday life.  Just like you, I always want to do my very best to help my children recognize how much God has blessed us and how much favor He has given our family.    

 I usually tell parents that having a heart of thankfulness and gratitude is something that we have to teach and model in front of our kids.  I love the scripture that tells us to enter the Lord’s gates with Thanksgiving!  God knew that we would need help teaching others how to be grateful and he has already given us step by step instructions to ensure each generation coming after us will follow our example of Praise!

 Psalm 100:4-5 Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.  For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.  NLT

 That is great news! All we have to do is model an attitude of Praise in front of our kids and God promises his goodness, unfailing love, and faithfulness will continue for every generation to come. 

 Ok, so how do we model that? I’m glad you asked!  I believe it happens in the little things.  On Monday morning when we are running late and we find our lost keys we say, Thank You Jesus!!!  When we get in the car, first thing we do is pray a “Thankful Prayer” where everything we pray starts off with the words Thank you Jesus.  We take the first part of our morning to set the course for the rest of our “Thankful” day!  

 I encourage you to be creative with your “Thankful Prayers”, look at everything in your life and see it as an opportunity to be thankful and Give God Praise!

About KidsLife


Early Childhood

Building a kids life starts at a very early age. The beginning stages of spiritual development are learning blocks that can help children discover early on how much God loves them. Our nursery (6 weeks to 2 years) gives children the opportunity to grow in a loving, caring environment that teaches life lessons in a biblical model. Our preschool guides little kids (3 years to kindergarten) into a safe, creative place that instills biblical concepts through age-specific learning.

Elementary

Watch as kids blast-off to a whole new level of relationship with God. 1st – 4th graders will engage in captivating environments filled with Bible lessons that will develop their faith, character, and purpose in life. At Kidslife, we try to create settings that not only enable strong spiritual growth, but strong friendships with other students. Every week will be a new fun and creative experience designed just for kids as they grow in their walk with God.

Extreme Kids

Our Small Group/Discipleship Program where Kids go EXTREME learning the Word of God. This program is designed for our kids to learn the importance of studying the Word of God and spending time with Jesus. Lots of classroom interaction time with team mates and small group leader, and take home devotional activities to do at home with parents makes this program a success.

Champions Club

This program is designed for our “special needs” champions in Kidslife. We believe every young person in the champions club can be developed with love and encouragement. Our activities provide growth tools to develop them spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally.

KidsLife doors open 45 minutes before the start of every main service.
