I have no greater joy than to know that my children walk in truth.The one thing I want for my children to learn is to love the Lord. I want them to know Him and experience how amazing His love is for us. This makes the little things like not spilling your drink seem a bit insignificant. I have been feeling this a lot lately. The aspects of normal life have been seeming non-important or even more like distractions. Have I been letting these little distractions from allowing me to show my children to love the Lord?
I was also drawn to the great commission when writing this essay. Matthew 28:19 "Go and make disciples of all nations. . ." I am supposed to be teaching my children to be disciples. The one thing I want my children to become are disciples. God has been teaching me that the most important thing I can do for my children is to show them how to be disciples of Him.
