Give Me a Break!

It was a long day with many meetings, dealing with people that did not understand my point of view. Wouldn’t the world be great if everyone thought like me. I am tired and just want a break. As I walk into the house, I am mentally and physically tired. I do not feel like parenting right now.

Wait a minute–do I ever stop parenting? Do I ever stop teaching my children about God? The more I sit here, I begin to realize that everything I do is teaching my children about God.

I need to ask myself, am I living a life that teaches my children that God is at the center of my life. Or, am I living a life that teaches my children there is no God or that God is irrelevant to my life?

My reaction to every situation, from when I wake up in the morning to when I go to sleep at night, will be showing my children my view of God.

My prayer for all of us is to recognize our daily need for Christ and to live a life that points our children to Him.

Acts 17:28a “For in him we live and move and have our being.”

One thought on “Give Me a Break!

  1. Agree, I have focused this year living my life focused on Christ intentionally demonstrating that for my grand kids.
