God in Our Conversation
by Charles R. Swindoll
You shall teach [God's commands]
diligently to your sons and shall talk
of them when you sit in your house.
We are to talk of spiritual things in our homes just as we would talk about anything else.
You talk together about how the Dodgers played last night. No big deal, you just talk about that. You talk about what you're going to do next week. You don't lecture on it. You don't make a big announcement, you simply talk about it. . . . You may talk about what you plan to watch on television that evening.
You don't hold classes on it, you merely talk about it. There is an easygoing, natural flow of conversation. . . .
That is what will make your Christianity authentic.
It isn't a Sunday lifestyle! It's a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday cycle-of-living lifestyle. So much so, that Christ fits naturally into the regular conversation of the home.
