Our community’s parents need to reevaluate their priorities and goals for their children. Our children are missing Sunday school and church in order to play ball. Families are doing without vacations because they can’t leave because of ball.
Let’s look at what our children are missing.
In Sunday school we teach them how to come into a relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We also teach them how to pray, how to use their Bibles, and how to grow in their faith. We teach them the priceless promises of God and how to hide God’s word in their hearts so that they will not sin against God.
We also bond as the Family of God through which we have a support group through all of life’s trials. The children learn to use the Bible as a map through life. True character comes from Biblical principles. The time is short when these children are reachable. America is reeling now because most of our CEO’s do not have Biblical character.
When parents allow their children to play ball on Sunday morning, they are making ball their god in place of the true God.
All ball leagues should set aside at least two weeks in the summer when no games are scheduled. Families need time together to vacation, explore, visit grandparents, go to cemeteries to revisit their roots and values, relax, and play together. Families also need time to teach life skills to their children.
Our communities are becoming crazier and crazier over ball and as a result are losing their focus on true values. Let’s pray that our parents will search their hearts and souls and put their children back in church on Sunday morning.
