As the Stars of the Sky – What is the significance of these words and how do they apply to children?

I’m always asked that question when I speak or write about As the Stars of the Sky Foundation, Inc. Those words actually come from a phrase in the Bible found in chapter 22 of Genesis and again at Hebrews 11:12. God spoke to Abraham about the importance of his faithfulness. He told Abraham that He would bless him because of his faithfulness. He then asked Abraham to look up at the sky and told him that one day, Abraham’s descendants would be as numerous as the stars of the sky.

According to Galatians 3:29, we are the true children or descendants of Abraham after we have made Jesus our Lord and Savior. We become heirs to the blessings of God.

People often believe that God’s Word only applies to adults. I know that is far from the truth! Nowhere in the Bible does God say that His Word is only for adults. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was about 9 years old. That was the turning point in my life and my faith has been the foundation of all that I have done and continue to do. My heart’s cry is to impact the lives of children so they can build a foundation on faith in God and help transform our world.
