How To Encourage Children of Divorce | Divorce Ministry 4 Kids

Last week when we talked about the power of encouragement, so this week let’s go deeper in the power of encouragement.Many children’s leaders actually end up discouraging the very children we want to encourage and should be encouraging. Our conversations can set the stage for discouragement by how we approach a subject or by the very words we use. When children are discouraged their fears are stirred up and their sense of failure becomes paramount in their minds.Kids who are fresh in the divorce experience may already feel a sense of failure.

Jesus’ Greatest Rival

Your Christian influence, your reputation as a worker for God and your standing among your brethren may be an idol to which you must die before you can be free to live for Jesus alone.If you have ever noticed the type on a printed page, you must have seen that the little “i” always has a dot over it. It is that dot that elevates it above the other letters in the line.Now, each of us is a little i, and over every one of us there is a little dot of self-importance, self-will, self-interest, self-confidence, self-complacency – – -or something to which we cling and for which we contend. But it just as surely reveals self-life as if it were a mountain of real importance.This i is a rival of Jesus Christ. It is the enemy of the Holy Spirit and of our peace and life Continue reading

Rev. Dr. Dan Montgomery: The Strength of Human Weakness

Weakness is an experience that nobody likes and everyone shuns. In America and most parts of the world Strength is admired and cultivated as a way of striving for achievement and building self-confidence.However, when people seek Strength at the expense of avoiding any sense of Weakness, they become entitled, inflated, and even cocky about how strong they are.

We all get sick, have accidents, are thrown into panic by sudden adversity, are vulnerable to various addictions, and haunted by the uncertainty that we may not have enough (money, friends, health, or even life) the day after tomorrow.So Christ teaches us to rely on him day to day, and not worry about tomorrow Continue reading
