Children: A Gift from God

By Cynthia Aber & YasiriJ. Kasango

Parents of Thorny Craft Chapel have been reminded that children are gifts from God. This happened during the Sunday service in commemoration of the African child. The sermon ran on the theme “Children are a gift from God.” 

Most parents presume that these children belong to them, but the preacher of the day, Deborah Mugawe, reminded them that these children are blessings from God.

“So many times we think children are ours. Let me tell you, these children are a gift from God.

Mrs. Magawe said. If one knew that children were gifts, they would not mistreat them.

She advised parents to always love their children, remember their special days, explain to them, listen to them, play with them, and guide them through Bible reading. Besides that, she also encouraged parents to train them in household chores.

The children have been called to be obedient to their elders. If they are to be successful in this world and live alone.

She encouraged the students at UCU to be glad that they are studying because there are so many rich fathers who are not paying their children’s tuition. The preacher also encouraged mothers to take on their most important role by devoting time to their children and, most importantly, enrolling their children in Sunday school.

Annabella Kim Impundu, 11 years old, said she feels happy to be in Sunday school since she is able to learn a lot. “We are usually grouped according to age but also sometimes capability. We usually choose what we love to do,”

The children in Thorny Craft Chapel are given different occasions to present poems, dances, and Bible sharing. “Usually every Sunday we go under the tree with our teachers and we do praise and worship,” says Joshua Nabireeba, 11 years old.

Sandrah Achora, a third-year BGIR student at Uganda Christian University (UCU), described the service as “unique” because it “focused heavily on the parents.” We shall become mothers one day and definitely end up as parents, so this service has really guided us today,” Sandrah said.
