To venable (verb): To randomly muse upon this and that.

…..and it’s Sunday morning. Does this leave you in a predicament? To which you say “What predicament?” I am talking about the issue of whether that scenario leads you to deliberate whether or not you will go to church that day. Of course the beautiful weather lures you towards a day at the beach with the family. But what about being with God’s people in church? More particularly though, what about the impression you are leaving with your children.

How many children have given up on church when they have moved into their teenage years because of the lack of interest and commitment of their professing Christian parents. Parents need to remember that they are teaching their children so much through their actions. Even to face a day of nice weather with a deliberation about being in church or not it is to set yourself in a way, which indicates to your children that church is not high on your agenda.

How we need to have an attitude like that of Joshua who in this deceleration showed his commitment to the Lord and His ways: But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.’ (Josh. 24:15).

  1. Very timely. The problem is that we think that if we occasionally set our children a good example that that will point them in the right direction. However, what we fail to understand is that every moment of every day we are setting our kids an example; all our choices, positive or negative, tell them something about our God. Even when we think we are loving our kids by taking them to the beach, we are actually hating them if it somehow teaches them that their day of fun and ice cream is more important than their God.
