REACH is a Verb
Let's take this as an example (mostly because I haven't had breakfast yet and we seem to all be able to relate to food analogies!). I can walk through the grocery store, look at the bananas, smile and think about how they would make a delicious banana pudding. But unless I actually reach out and pick them up, put them in my cart, buy them, take them home and put some time into making the pudding, it will never happen. It's the same with our children. Unless we actually make a conscious effort to see our children, reach out and connect with them, invest our time and heart into creating something wonderful, we might as well just be passing by. Think about those children in your life. It may be your own children, it may be your students, it may be your Sunday school class - whatever opportunities you have throughout your day to connect with kids. Are you really making an effort to reach them? Are you taking action to move toward connecting and communicating with them so that they can truly feel that you care about them and who they are becoming? Reaching our kids is critical and the payoff is priceless! Take time today to think about how you can reach those children in your life. Take action! Invest some time and heart and create something wonderful!
