Resurrection Sunday is when we celebrate the New Covenant made possible by the Resurrected life of Christ. The least that we can do is to give our lives to the Lord to use us. As Jesus is an example to us of laying down ones life for the sake of the Kingdom, let’s purpose to model this to our children. Imagine the shift that would occur if all of our children began to place Gods will FIRST in their lives and then lived that out throughout their entire lives. Well God gave us a perfect example of someone who did just that. As parents we have a responsibility to lead our children by example.
Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.” When we put the Kingdom first, God will add to us the other things. Lets show our children how to prioritize so they will value the Kingdom more than worldly things. Remember when you serve God, His blessings will be your reward!
Have a wonderful Spring! See you in Town!
