Joshua 24:15 (NASB)
My family is spending this week at the beach and enjoying some time together. But one of the things we have decided to do on this trip is to add worship. That does NOT mean that we are going to have a church service each day we are gone. What is DOES mean is that we are going to be more intention during our family devotions. We will spend some time worshipping God in various ways: through nature, through music, through sharing our thoughts and other creative ways we can find.
I praise God for my family. Blessed is a big word, but it speaks volumes of truth about what I am experiencing as a father, as a husband and as a child of God. We have much to worship God for and about. It is my calling and commitment to lead my family to see and know and worship God. We have a choice as the verse above states.
You have a choice. Family devotions can start with one or two people or more. Devotions can be a couple minutes or 15 minutes or more. Just do it. Start somewhere pointing yourself and your family to God. This may be the very thing that keeps your family together when it begins to fall apart.
Recently we have had a couple conversations that I was pretty passionate about, and what my kids shared with me made me extremely proud. They get it. They get the fact that I am passionate about helping people, and they need to follow in the same way. They get it. We can't forget God in our daily lives with is so easy to do.
Take some time to start something new or to make a new commitment to spend time with your family doing devotions and worshipping God.
