5 Habits to Prove It's Not All About You

Description

The responsibilities of family life can pull any well-meaning parent off track, but if you focus on these five habits your focus will be on God, and you will learn it's all about Him.

The First Habit: Solitude. Jesus modeled solitude as an integral, strategic component of His leadership. In solitude and prayer, away from the hopes and hurts of those who looked to Him with high and compelling expectations, Jesus again received instructions on the best use of the next day from the Father.

The Second Habit: Prayer. As Jesus demonstrated, prayer and solitude often go together. Prayer isn’t just a wish list; it’s a way to quiet yourself and commune with the Lord. As Jesus prayed,

Our Father in heaven,

hallowed by your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done

on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:9-10, emphasis added).

The Third Habit: Studying and Applying Scripture. Jesus knew the Scriptures. Just in the Sermon on the Mount alone Jesus quoted from the books of Deuteronomy, Exodus and Leviticus.

The Fourth Habit: Accepting God’s Unconditional Love. Jesus stayed close to His Father by constantly trusting His Father’s unconditional love, even to the end.

The Fifth Habit: Involvement in Supportive Relationships. Even as Jesus spoke to thousands, he had a small group of disciples and close friends who he counted on.

The responsibilities, distractions, and occasional conflicts of family life can pull any well-meaning parent off track, but if you focus on these five habits your focus will be on God, and you will learn it's all about Him.
