It’s time to encourage these children to take up their own responsibilities. We are not encouraging hard work for the goal of becoming a millionaire; we encourage working diligently for the Lord, using the gifts He has given us for His good! Come be encouraged that our occupation is one that is appointed to us. We’ll go over suggestions to encourage those less-than-enthusiastic children and gain a better perspective of what is really going on.
