Is Your Children’s Ministry An Idol?

Share

Children’s leaders and pastors work long hours and devote much time to serving God in children’s ministry. Most children’s leaders motives are pure. They are doing what they do because God has called them to one of the most important ministries in the Kingdom of God. How then could children’s ministry become an idol?

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll list some danger signs that you are putting your children’s ministry ahead of God. Here’s a list of questions that may show you have a problem in this area.

Do you only study the Bible to prepare a Children’s Sermon?

Is growth of your children’s ministry your measure in how much God loves or favors you?

Do you have downtime from children’s ministry?

Does you pray more or only when you have a children’s ministry event or service?

When you read “this one thing I do” in Scripture, do you immediately think of all you do for children’s ministry?

Is children’s ministry your vision, your passion, or your assignment from God?

Do you pray and fast to grow closer to God or to get God to grow the children’s ministry?

I’ll cover each of these questions over the next few weeks.
