10 Things not to do with young Children Though I am not convinced these things are not limited to young children. My children are all over 10, and yet this article provided a quick check list for some important aspects of their life such as: their motivation to learn, their walk with God, their lifeskills and involvement in family life and the real world, in their serving you and others, in respect, in submission, in how they spend their time, in unique and original thinking? Read through this article from Trivium Pursuit and think on these things for your children, young and old.


A Rebultionary Looks Back – Reading testimonies is always inspiring. As I read this girl’s testimony of how God challenged her apathy I myself am challenged. When we read these types of stories we need to keep our heart very close to God – we need to be challenged with the challenge, not with the action. God created in Tabitha a burden for the unborn and the issue of abortion – but she was challenged with her attitude to life, her contentment with simply being good. God will put different burdens on each of our heart, He will have us in different circumstances but He challenges our heart to rise up, not to settle for mediocrity, to do the best we can for Him and His purposes.


There have been so many newsletters and articles written about new years and the fresh starts that we feel at the turn of a year. Chuck Colson writes on Amazing Grace – His reflection for New Years Day. I have printed this article off and put it in my Celebrations Binder so I can remember this for next year. We had friends over for New Years Eve and we gathered together between main course and dessert to pray and give thanks to God. Next year I would like us to sing Amazing Grace.

Vertical Thought – a magazine of understanding for tomorrow’s leaders—strives to serve up relevant content to help young people ages 12-22 discover and live God’s way of life.

Thinking vertically is a challenge God offers all of us. Even though we human beings are presently temporal, flesh-and-blood beings, as Christians we are empowered to “seek those things which are above, where Christ is,” and to set our minds “on things above” (Colossians 3:1-2).

Vertical Thought exists to help you not only think about, but act on, these things from above—the things that are really most important in life. Apply what you read and you can have a better life now as well as in the future. Remember: as one “thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).
