Today I am posting a Marriage Monday over at Woman to Woman Ministries. The winner of The Husband Project is revealed. Join us!
I want to start the week off with a question for you. I also asked this question on our Facebook page the other day. If you were alone and your child happened to come in, what would you want them to stumble in to find you doing? Watching porn? Gossiping? Stealing from someone? Drinking? Or on your knees in prayer for your family?
Our children watch everything we do. Everything.
We cannot blame our parents for our faults. We have the choice and power of God to 'break the chain' of bad or sinful behavior. My husband is proof of this, but that story is for another time. However, generally what we see growing up is what we do. The way you are living now, is this how you want your kids to live? How you want them to treat their spouse? How you want them to treat your grandchildren?
I want to challenge you to think about these things over the next couple of weeks.
I have been counting down the days and in less than two weeks a new movie comes out, Courageous. If you have not yet seen clips of the movie or heard of it, I encourage you check out the link. This movie is bound to change lives. Courageous is a movie that teaches us, men in particular, to stand up and be parents to our children, husbands/wives to our spouses and to live for Christ. Honor begins at home.
In celebration of the movie coming out, I am giving away the Courageous Living Bible Study. This is a four week Bible study with DVD clips from the movie perfect for your personal study or as a group study. I have been extremely excited and prayerful over this movie for many months now, but as I began this study last week, I was amazed. The video clips brought tears to my eyes. I think at one point I stopped breathing! I greatly encourage you to make plans to see this movie, it opens September 30th. You can check out the Bible study here. Pray about hooking up with some friends for accountability and doing this study. You will not regret it!
To win this study all you have to do is comment on each blog post this week. Each comment is an entry. For bonus entries, Facebook and/or Tweet about this giveaway. The winner will be announced on Friday, September 23rd.
