I hope that you agree that loving God is the point--the only course worth following. If you do, you should then be asking something along the lines of, "Okay, so how do I do this? How do I love God more?" Even harder than that: "How do I help my kids to love God more?" These are exactly the questions to ask. Work on some answers yourself. Ask wise people around you. Be stubborn and intractable until you have a biblical plan that will lead you toward loving God moreand guiding others to do the same. Next time I'll tell you what I've come up with.
