Children who Ministered in the Bible

Here’s a list of children and teens who God used in great ways while the were young.

1 Kings 17:1-6 – God used a young girl who was a slave of Naaman, a Syrian captain, to tell him about God’s healing power and about the prophet Elijah.

Genesis 39 – Joseph was sold into slavery as a young teen, yet he lived for God in Egypt.

II Kings 22 – Josiah becomes king at the age of eight and is known for bringing Israel back in line with God’s Word.

1 Samuel 3 – Samuel served the Lord in the temple at the age of 3 and by the age of 7, delivered a Word from God to Eli.

1 Samuel 16-17 – David was anointed king and slew Goliath as a teenager.

Luke 2:41-53 – Jesus taught his elders in the temple at the age of 12.

Matthew 14:13-21 – A boy gives his lunch to Jesus to feed the multitudes.

2 Timothy 3:15 – Timothy served God and studied the Scriptures as a boy.

These are only a few examples of how God uses children in ministry. So why aren’t we training them to be leaders?
