Hey, Y’all! How’s everyone doing?
Happy Hump Day! We are halfway through our final week of this study. After today, we’ll be over the hump and headed toward the weekend! But before we get there, I have something that’s pretty important to discuss.
Today I want to talk about Chapter 29, What’s the Most Crucial Life Lesson? As moms, we have so much that we want to teach our kids. There are many life lessons we hope they “get” while they are under our roof. And they are all pretty important! So how do we know what’s most important? I love this paragraph Lysa writes on page 217:
While I do want to equip my children to be well-rounded, responsible adults, I must not miss the most important thing. Of all the things I teach my children, I must place their relationship with Jesus at the top of the list. More than just going through the motions of taking them to religion classes, Sunday school, and getting them baptized, I must ask: Am I fostering in them a desire for their own personal relationship with Jesus? Yes, these other things are important outward symbols of our commitment as a family, but what about my children’s hearts? Do they love Jesus out of family tradition or out of a personal relationship with Him?
Now, here’s the hard part. They cannot really know Him as Healer unless He has healed them in some way.
Lysa goes on to write how this means that as a mom, we have to get out of the way. We nurture our kids, but point to Jesus for the healing.
Yes, ya’ll, it for sure isn’t easy being a mom, but aren’t we thankful that we are?
Of everything you want to teach your children, what’s at the top of your list for them to learn?
What are some ways you can contribute to your child learning this?
