LIVE -no, not eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die, but rather as Matthew 5:16 says Let your light so shine before men,. . .Evangelize Your Children – We have been entrusted with a gift from God, and
He has equipped us with His gospel. There is no greater charge to a parent than to deliver this great and momentous news. There is no greater equipping than the good and perfect revelation of God’s Holy Word.~Ken Ham
Live Christ before them:
1 Corinthians 9:14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
I am thankful that as a child I learned Scripture from wall plaques that mom hung up such as I Peter 5:7 and Isaiah 30:15.
She also would put little sayings around the house in obvious places such as
Seven days without prayer makes one WEAK
What you do speaks so loudly that the world cannot hear you. They are looking at your walk, not
listening to your talk, they are judging by your actions every day.
John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
We also need to:
Jesus certainly showed the children love – he showed physical affection by taking them on his lap, he never turned them away, and as the children were on his lap, I think he listened with undivided attention.
Luke 18:15-16 And they brought unto him also infants , that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
If love prevails in a home between members, you will find a happy home. The words “I love you” ought to abound in the Christian home. The gentle touch ought to be felt in the Christian home. The affectionate glance ought to be felt in the Christian home by all members of the household. ~N. Stevens
Acts of kindness and thoughtfulness ought to run rampant throughout the Christian home.
The giving of one’s self and doing for one another ought to be the normal course of action in the Christian home.
You show love to your children by controlling who their friends are:
I Corinthians 15:33, the Bible says, .Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners…
He who frequents the company of bad or corrupt men will soon be as they are.
Love ought to characterize the Christian home if it is going to be a happy home.
In Romans 12:10, the Bible says, .Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love..
And, surely, brotherly love that exists in the house of God ought to begin in the Christian home.
Ecclesiastes 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh;…
Proverbs 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
- LIVE today as though it were your last – Live life to the fullest by living every moment for the Lord
- LOVE – Love one another – Love with all your heart
- LAUGH – Laugh Often – Let your heart always be joyful
Things don’t last forever, but your children do. They are the only “things” you can take to heaven with you so evangelize them so they will be ready.
