Acorns become Oak Trees that drink 50 + gallons of water daily.
Jesus commands us to bring children to the Living Water so they thirst no more.
He desires children to drink of His living water and share the joy with others.
“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.
Whoever believes in me …‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
Acorns become Oak Trees that adapt to a wide range of conditions.
Jesus tells us to lead children to Christ. A child of five has the greatest faith.
He urges us to share His promises so they know His presence always goes with them.
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Acorns become Oak Trees that are generally free from pests and disease.
Jesus died and rose again for all children to be set free from sin and live to please Him.
He instructs us to carefully teach the children to hide God’s Word in their hearts.
“I have stored up your word in my heart, That I might not sin against you.”
Acorns become Oak Trees that are hardy, strong trees living hundreds of years.
Jesus longs to be every child’s tower of strength just like God was to Bible heroes.
He directs us to tell children of His resurrection power that is available to them.
“The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
the righteous man runs into it and is safe.”
Acorns become Oak Trees that are one of the best shade trees.
Jesus is our shade; He watches over us 24/7.
He desires us to train up children to praise God, pray to Him and tell His story.
“The Lord is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand…”
May we do our part in reaching and nurturing the acorns/children as Christ commanded
so that they may grow into strong tree / faithful followers and
“may be called
OAKS of RIGHTEOUSNESS,
the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
