There is no greater responsibility given to a husband and father than to lead my family.This is a calling that I take very seriously.
That’s why we have decided to be intentional about leading our family in the ways of Christ (for biblical background see Deuteronomy 6). One of the best and most significant ways we do this is by having regular Family Worship. For our family, this means that every night except Sunday and Wednesday we meet together before bedtime, sing songs, read the Bible, memorize Scripture and pray together.
This week, we’ve been using The Resurrection Eggs. This is a fun and simple way to teach your children about the Triumphal Entry, Garden of Gethsemane, Betrayal, Crucifixion, Burial and Resurrection of Christ. We hide the eggs around the house and then with great joy the children run around and find them. Then, we sit down and go through the story of the gospel.
I pray that a love for God and His gospel will take root deeply in the hearts of my children at an early age. Can I guarantee that will happen? I don’t know. But I do know this: if you won’t lead your family, someone else will!
