If you read my articles, you know I believe in the importance of investing in the next generation.
And I have often said, you never know who is sitting in your class or small group.
I have often been surprised when I find out that one of the kids who was in my ministry years ago, is all grown up and doing amazing things.
I had one of those moments this past weekend. I was back visiting with some ministry friends and catching up on some of the old times. We were talking about how some of the kids who grew up in our ministry have gone on to do some amazing things.
I asked how the ____________ family was doing? They had 3 sons that I taught and coached in basketball many years ago.
The people I was talking with informed me that those 3 boys (along with a cousin) had started a band in their garage. They went on to become a famous, nationally known band that has received multiple awards and accolades. Can you guess what band they are? Leave your guesses in the comment section below to find out.
It was interesting to me. I never knew they could sing when I was investing in them. I also never knew they played musical instruments.
I wonder if there have been other kids that had gifts and talents that I have failed to recognize and encouraged to pursue.
You see, you never know who is sitting under the sound of your voice. It may be a future president, doctor, nursery volunteer or godly business man or woman?
You have so much potential sitting in your room or small group. Invest in the kids God has brought across your path. You may be discipling a future world-changer.
