the day before school begins

Tomorrow morning my kids will walk back into their respective schools for another year of learning.  I am proud of my kids, yet I understand that school is not one of their favorite things.  We've been preparing for this day for a while.  We've bought school supplies and school clothes.  Our big back2school outreach helped gets lots of kids ready as well.

But what happens this year is still up in the air.  It is yet to be seen.  Have my wife and I prepare our kids for excellence and success?  Yes, that is our job as parents.

Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

We make a difference in our kid's lives when we pour Jesus into their lives.  But that doesn't happen by chance and without a plan to do so.  How do build truth into the lives of your kids?

My prayer with my children, over my children and while they are at school for my children is for them to experience God in fresh ways that helps them show others that God is real.  My kids are 7, almost 12 and 13.  Each of them has an opportunity to exceed and to lead others.  This is a great opportunity.

God warns us not to waste our opportunities.  He reminds us to see others as He sees them.  As you prepare for your kids to go back to school, prepare them to have a great year.  For me, it is the day before school begins and I want to give my kids all I can so they will know God in bigger ways.  How about you?
