Love your kids. Speak the truth.

Posted on August 6, 2013 · Posted in Worldview

In all of the ease and comfort of modern life it is easy to forget what the world is truly like. It is easy to lose sight of the need to prepare your children for a world that is deadly as it is deceitful. It is easy to love the world. If you find it difficult to warn your children of the world’s danger, that may be one sign that you love the world more than you think you do.

Love your kids. Speak the truth. Flee deception. Honor God with your words.
