1. You’re not really making a difference. “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it” (Is. 55:11, NLT).

2. What you do is not as important as adult ministry. “But Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children’” (Matt. 19:14).

3. You don’t have the ability to do this. "It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies" (Zech. 4:6).

4. You’re too busy to pray. “But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you” (Matt. 6:6).

5. You’re teaching kids. If you were a really good teacher, you would be teaching adults. “You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim. 3:15).
