Do you want to know what made me teary eyed recently? This past weekend I watched one of our older girls showing a younger how to use the Bible. Victoria pointed out where to find the book of the Bible you are looking for. She explained that the big number is the chapter and the little is the verse and then she read the scripture to our little friend and explained what it was saying. How exciting it was to see a 10 year old pour into a child much younger than herself. Victoria could have been sitting with a friend her age or shouting that she found the verse first BUT she chose to look at the interest of another not just her own. This is huge! I was so excited and proud not just of her but of our awesome volunteers who go above and beyond to pour into these kids each week.
Not only was my heart full at this moment but I was encouraged by a 10 year old to always be willing to step up and help others in their spiritual walk. We don’t go to church just to be poured into. We go to church to pour into others. Victoria is a reminder to all of us to be willing to step up and help others grow in there walk with Jesus. Will you step up?
