Does it take a village, or a tribe?

Posted on 6/12/2018 by Greg Yoder

In a tribal situation, sometimes it’s difficult to figure out what kids belong to what adults. Why? Because the entire tribe is taking a role in raising kids. While I was growing up, I spent a good part of my summer hanging out with two of my neighbors. Both parents had an influence in raising me. One family helped me athletically, while the other family helped me in my love for outdoor recreation. It’s probably why I have a motorcycle today. Do we do enough to reach out to our kids’ friends so that we can influence their lives both physically AND spiritually? Our answer NEEDS to be yes, because our neighborhood kids need Jesus. What are we doing to be Jesus to them?

Suggested Reading: Matthew 5:14-16
