Children are the future

2017-09-20 06:02

CHILDREN are so precious and we have the power to transform their minds and shape their thinking. We can challenge their mindset and open them up to new ways and thought processes.

We stimulate their growth to achieve. We have the ability to nurture them when they are young or in want or in need of information that will change their lives. We hold the key to their future. Let us help them embrace a new beginning and live a fulfilled and happy life through wisdom, understanding and knowledge. We can help them to reach their goals and strive for their dreams.

Let us not hold back the love we possess to build them up, but give generously and share their hopes and plans to make their future a bright possibility. Let us not grow weary of well doing or give up the torch to inflame their hearts and educate their souls.

It does not matter how many years of service you had, what matters is how many children you impacted with your years of service. Let us not judge them by our own standards, but take them to a higher level by imparting our tools and resources.

Let us write on their tablets, stir up a culture of creativity, set them free from the chains or confines of non-belief in themselves that they can’t do this or grasp a concept, but bend, expand, broaden, heighten their depth of functioning with inspiration, motivation, hidden nuances, sacrificial reflection and engaging material.

We plant these mind-seeds and watch them grow into spectacular giant trees providing shade to the garden or community through their businesses, careers, extending helping hands or branches of support to those who are jobless, needy, orphaned, poor.

We look at their purposeful splendour, we know we cultivated by digging up the ground of their intellect and watering it with knowledge so they became what we taught them.
