I just finished reading Faith Training by Joe White. The book is centered around passing our faith onto our children. Overall, it’s not that great of a read. HOWEVER, it did inspire me to be more intentional about teaching my kids to love Jesus. As Joe says, it’s not the responsibility of the school system or the church to train my children–the responsibility belongs with me as a parent!
Sooo, Tabs and I will continue to memorize Bible verses together. I’ll continue to recount the stories of God’s people whenever possible. I’ll continue to sing “Jesus loves me” to my son Elijah when I put him to bed.
At the end of the day, or the end of my life, if I haven’t raised children that love the Lord, then I have failed one of the most important responsibilities entrusted to me.
