This past weekend our junior high students attended the Christ In Youth BELIEVE Convention at Northern Kentucky University. We joined with about 6,000 other junior high students and adults to sing, laugh, listen, learn and grow. (We might have eaten some pizza, too!)
In the final session, the speaker was encouraging us to use the gifts and abilities and influence God has given us for others. He said that means having an influence on whomever God may put in our path.
He shared a few examples of students he knew that invested their time and energy to impact others. He then showed a video clip about a middle school football team who went out of their way to make a difference in the life of one of their teammates. It’s not only a good story, but a great example for all of us.
