How to lead your children to Christ
July 22, 2011
Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
You and I live in a microwave generation. So when it comes to anything, we want to have it quickly and instantly. Now, I’m no exception. I’ll often stand in front of the microwave and think, “When is this thing ever going to get done?”
But the problem arises when we try to raise our kids like that. It just doesn’t work that way. There’s no cheap and convenient way to pass along your faith and put into your children’s lives what God wants put in their lives.
You see, parents can have children, but their responsibility doesn’t end at birth. That means day after day, they have to make it a priority to train them in the way they should go. Your career is not your priority. Your success in the eyes of the world is not your priority. Your priority is the family that God has given you.
Your kids are looking for leadership. And you know what? They’re going to find it whether it’s from you or from someone else. So be the greatest influence you can on your children as you raise them to love God and follow Christ all the days of their lives.
LEAD YOUR KIDS TO CHRIST BY INVESTING IN THEIR LIVES EACH DAY AND LEADING THEM BY SETTING A GODLY EXAMPLE.
