Keep it Real
But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
If you are a parent who wants to pass your faith on to the next generation, I have some advice for you—KEEP IT REAL!
If you and I are going to instill a strong, unshakable faith in our children, we must be transparent, authentic, and real. Exercising your faith at home must be part of your everyday life!
Now you certainly don’t have to dress up for it or put a face on for it. Real faith works in a suit or in blue jeans. Make faith a normal, comfortable part of your everyday life and your children will see faith in action.
I love today’s verse when Joshua said, “But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” He took the lead and made the decision that his household would live for God. You can make the same decision for your family today!
If your heart and soul longs to know Christ, real faith will permeate your life as a parent, whether you are worshipping or working, praying or playing, going to church or fishing. When you rise and when you go to bed at night, be real!
Make God’s Word part of your daily walk. Talk the truth, model the truth, and live the truth.
According to Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
Training your child in the ways of the Lord is a 24/7 job, but you can do it with God’s help.
MAKE FAITH A NORMAL, COMFORTABLE PART OF YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE AND YOUR CHILDREN WILL SEE FAITH IN ACTION.
