We are living in such a unique juncture of time in human history and never before has it been so vital that we possess kingdom values in relation to children.

As believers, we must begin to reassess our priorities and values and get them lined up with God’s. God is calling us to overcome old wineskin mindsets towards children and to contend for the new thing that God wants to do in them and through them. Most churches are not prepared for the harvest because we don’t yet value children spiritually as we should. As believers we must seek to have Kingdom values and we need to begin to advocate for others to pursue the same—so that our hearts, resources, structures, etc. are in line with what God is doing with children.

So simple, yet so profound when it comes to spiritual warfare, and the devil’s ongoing attack on the mind of man. What do people say about your eyes?
