Marva Dawn begins her new book Is It a Lost Cause? asking this question: Are we raising our children to live the substance and presence of faith and to pass Gods love and their faith on to their friends, neighbors, and peers at school?
Marvas book emphasizes our greatest work: having the heart of God for the churchs children. She says that without authority to guide in the formation of childrens moral character, theyll lack the basic resources to find joy and to find the meaning and purpose God has for them in their life.
I know that you are praying for your children.|
Marva underlined your work and my work. What you and I do to introduce a child, or a grandchild, to God our holy and loving Father, is the greatest work well ever do. I know that you are praying for your children. I know that you remember that Jesus wants us to bring them him. Today, talk to your children about the love of God for them and about the grand plan that God has for their life if they will trust and obey him. That is the greatest work you can do today and God will help you as you do it!
