Thought for the Lord’s Day

Posted on · Posted in Worship

Who (or what) do your kids think you worship?


Your children know you for who you really are.  They see you when you are not aware they are watching. They hear your words when you think they can’t. They see your face in your unguarded moments.  They know what is really important to you. They know what you really think of God and his word. 


Would you welcome hearing their honest assessment of who (or what) you really worship?


Something to think about. Something to talk to God about. Be honest with your children. Be honest with God.  Love God and your kids enough to pray this prayer:


Search me, God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.

See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.
