Time with God - March 23, 2018

The most important part of your day is your time with God


Genesis 2:23-24

“Then the man said, ‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’

Our goal with our children is to prepare them for the day when they launch out of our home into their own lives!

When our children are small we work hard to protect them physically and emotionally and spiritually from things that could harm them and to teach them how to live. But we must always remember that our job is not just to protect them; and our job is not to keep them with us as long as possible.

Rather, our job is to develop them in life and in their relationship with the Lord so that one day they are able to step out of our harbouring home and live fruitful, God-glorifying lives on their own. And we are preparing them to lead families of their own one day.

Whether your kids are small or teenagers, God wants you to constantly think about how you can develop them spiritually to be able to walk with God apart from you, and how to develop them as people for the same purpose.
