I have been involved with Children’s Ministry for a very long time. One thing I’ve learned as a teacher and as a parent, is the important call God has placed on our lives to train up a child in the way they should go. This Chapter in Deuteronomy makes it clear that we are to invite our God to be in the midst of everything we do with our kids.
This “doodle” reminds me that HE is to be the foundation. Not school, sports, work, stuff, or even church activities. God alone is to be our portion, and He will work out all the details. As my kids all go out into the world, I am reminded that the next generation is coming. I may not have done everything right as a parent, but I now can look towards the responsibility of coming along side my kids to assist in “training up” their kids. It is a sweet sweet time, and a new chance to pour the LOVE of Christ on these precious ones.
Quite a few years back I was “gifted” a book at a ministry conference.
I HIGHLY recommend it!!!!! (Click on it for the link)
