Manila, Philippines. [October 6, 2015] The 3-day Thanksgiving of the Members Church of God International (MCGI) on October 2-4 presented one of the most valuable lessons in life: seeds of abraham that is impossible to be counted, caring for our children and the fulfillment of the prophecy of Gods people. It rained for days but this had not stopped them from giving thanks to God to and travel to reach the ADD Convention Center in Apalit Pampanga and attemding other remote points with 1,361 satelite recievers around the globe.
On the first day, Bro. Daniel Razon talked about the importance of including our children in all church gatherings. It is a fact that children is often neglected and being shoved off in almost all events of the family. They are seen as an annoyance and disturbance because of their nature as temperamental and easily get bored.
Higher regards or importance to children. A screechy voice of the children will not annoy God unlike the scribes and Pharisees do not want the children. Those who have Christ in their hearts wont feel ill about the noises. Brother Eli Soriano reiterated that in all means, children will go to heaven. God nurture and gives importance to children. A good example is the conversation between Our Lord Jesus Christ and the chief priests and scribes in Mathew 21:15-16
But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant; 16 and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read,
‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings
thou hast brought perfect praise’?”
Bro. Eli pointed out its importance, as it is written in the Bible,
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.- Proverbs 22:6
Parents are encouraged to bring along their children to hear and be familiar with the songs and praises to God. As for other members, they are advised to be patient and understanding to their little ones. The Members Church of God International, seeing the importance of kids hearing the word of God, they were also given a room in every locale called KNC Rooms. A destined worker will supervise and teach the children about stories from the Bible. There, they have activities such as Bible reading, singing, and even preaching. Through this motivation of encouraging parents to bring along their kids, the KNC Show is taken into the television program to further reach every household.
