we will serve the Lord.
We recently had a conversation with our 13 year old daughter. She is very active in school activities and I have the privilege on several nights to transport my daughter and her friends to various locations. We always have KLOVE playing on the radio and recently she has been asking us to turn the station when her friends are in the car. So my wife and I sat her down and asked her why she has us turn the station when her friends are in the car and she replied, “I don’t want them to make fun of me.” While none of these girls have said anything to her she just assumes they are making fun of her. So we explained to her that being a Christian is not something to be ashamed of and that the few moments her friends are in the car can be the only time they get any spiritual messages in their life. Just as the verse says, our children need to see that in our homes, we will serve the Lord.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Give us the ability to ensure to our children
how important you are in our lives. Let them
not be ashamed to minister to their friends,
to be proud of their relationship with you.
In Jesus name, Amen.
