Are They Getting It?



Sometimes the best way for our kids to “get it” is simply for us to share our lives and our daily faith stories with them.

I wonder if our kids are really “getting” what we hope to pass on to them?

A few years ago, my son’s youth group leader asked the kids to share ways to make good use of their time for God. Joshua told us he talked about how his dad takes time at lunch to do a Bible study with co-workers. I couldn’t help but smile knowing my husband, JJ, had simply shared with Joshua what he did on his lunch hour and it made an impact.

You see, for years JJ’s taken time to read the Bible or a book with co-workers who don’t have a relationship with God, in hopes of starting conversations about Jesus. By simple telling Joshua about his day, JJ had passed on an important lesson.

You know, sometimes the best ways for our kids to “get it” is for us to simply share our lives and our daily faith stories with them.
