07 Love the Lord Your God
February 14, 2021
Oh, that our children might learn from us how to love God with all their heart, soul, and might! To ignore this responsibility is to fail our children and to set them up to forfeit God's blessings.To ignore this responsibility is to create spiritually malnourished children who will not be able to withstand the pressures still to come. And you can be sure the pressure will certainly come.
In his book The Great Evangelical Recession, John Dickerson makes a clear case that future generations will face more, not less, external pressure to walk away from the faith. Times are hard for believers now, but we have not yet seen how difficult it will be here in the west.
Are you doing all you can do to prepare your children for the days to come? Are you training your children to love their God? And if you are not a parent or your children are grown, what are you doing to help invest in the next generation as a member of their community?
