A Moment To Praise For Kids 7.20.21

When someone tells me what to do, I don’t like it. Do you?

I think that we as people will often try to do the opposite of what someone asks. I don’t know why that is, but it seems to be the case, including for me!

When God asks me to do something, I also may go and do the opposite. I might feel like what He is asking for is too hard. I may feel that I am not smart enough or holy enough to do what He is asking. Funny enough, God knows that about us. He knows our personalities so well.  And yet, He gave us one command. A must-do thing. It is called “The Great Commission”. This scripture tells us to “GO!”

Read about it here in scripture.

Bible Gateway passage: Matthew 28:19-20 – International Children’s Bible

So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have told you. You can be sure that I will be with you always. I will continue with you until the end of the world.”


In this scripture, God isn’t saying, “Hey, when you feel like why don’t you just give it a try?” He is saying point blank, “GO!” I think He means it. He also adds at the very end that He will be with you until the end of the world. He’s not telling you that you will be alone. In fact, He’s saying He will be right there with you for the rest of time.

Try to remember that God knows what’s right for you and for others. Trust in Him and follow where He leads you. Someday, someone will tell you that because of your faith, they found Jesus in their own life. Now that is a command worth listening to, with a great reward for everyone!
