So often kids think that because they are young they really cannot do amazing things for Christ. But as the Jesus so clearly states in 1 Timothy 4:12 it is children who really seem to be in a deep relationship with Christ.
“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”
Alex Kuenzli is a Christ follower who didn’t let her age stop her from doing big things for Him. Her organization, Kicks for Kids, began because of a desire to help others as well as serve God. Kicks for Kids collects used and new soccer balls to send to kids throughout the world as a tool to teach them more about soccer as well as to share the love of God with them.
So now that we have this information what do we do with it? Well it can be a great model for our own children, if they have an idea for some sort of ministry they want to start. Another thing is that we can encourage kids to help out with Alex’s ministry by going through their old soccer balls and seeing if they have one to donate.
