How is everybody doing today?
We had VBS at church this last week. VBS is always a fun, busy time. There’s something about seeing all those eager-to-learn smiling faces that lights a fire in my soul. I think we adults need VBS just as much as the kids do. Their enthusiasm helps shape our motivation.
My first real church memory from childhood is a VBS memory. I didn’t accept Christ that summer, but that’s where I learned to trust those strange churchy adults. That trust played a major role in my willingness to listen at a later date when one of those adults talked to me about Jesus. So while I wasn’t saved at VBS, I still think it played an important role in my childhood and, ultimately, in my salvation. I can imagine some the many different directions my life could have gone without Christ, and I’ll be forever grateful to God – and to the adults who followed His lead – for loving me enough to invest in me and show me a better way. The best way, really.
What about you? Do you have any good VBS memories (as an adult or from childhood)? Does your church do VBS – and if it does, is there anything special you do to help?
Wishing everyone a marvelous week!
