Its been a long and tiresome month and today I felt so drained sitting here in my office. So I put on the new podcast and listened as my spirit got refreshed! Thank you so much for your wisdom and encouragement in children's ministry!!

Title: A Ladder Up to Heaven!
Author/Source: Karl Bastian
Topic: Jacob's Vision of Heaven
Summary: The story of Jacob’s vision of the stairway to heaven represents a turning point in Jacob’s life where he finally experiences God for himself. No longer is the God of Heaven the God of his fathers, but he has his own personal experience that forever changes him. However, even in this experience we still see the ‘grabber’ at work as he bargains with God. Kids can understand bargaining, “God give me what I want and I will live for you.” We need to notice that God’s promise here was non-conditional – neither should our promises be! Challenge kids to have their own personal experiences with God and not just live ‘their parent’s” faith and to promise to live for God no matter what!
