Recently singer Jeremy Riddle posted this status update to Facebook:
That really hit me.
We know that we need to pursue God. We know that we need to spend time with Him. But are we taking are kids along with us? Or are we just focusing on our own relationship with Christ?
One of the sweet ladies in my accountability group is doing the Bible in 90 days reading plan. Her twelve year old is doing it with her. Amazing! What is even more amazing is that they actually discuss the reading together. That is something this child will remember all of her life. She is definitely taking her daughter with her on her pursuit of Christ!
How can we take our kids on our journey to Christ with us?
Read the Word together, talk about God together, pray together, pray for your child, ask your child to pray for you, and share with them what God is doing in your life.
You may one day wake up and regret not praying with your child, or not talking about your praise reports with your child, but you will never, ever regret sharing your spiritual life with them.
Today I challenge you to take time out to talk to your children, no matter their age, about your relationship with God. Share something God is doing in your life or what you are reading in the Word.
