Growth is an awesome thing to watch…often times it happens right before our very own eyes! Take your kids for example; I’m sure every home has somewhere designated that you will chart your families growth. That measuring place becomes an exciting place to be for the whole family! Kids get to see that they are growing and catching up to mom and dad and mom even sheds a tear or two thinking about how fast their babies are growing. Kids grow so fast and it’s an exciting time but growth comes in many different forms.
Are you excited about the spiritual growth of your children? How exciting is it when you hear your child say for the first time that Jesus loves them? Talk about a special moment! As a parent you play a very important role in the spiritual growth of your kids! Check out Deut. 6, we are to walk with our kids daily. Luke 2:52 says that “Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with The Lord.” As Jesus grew in stature he also grew spiritually. That should be our heart beat, as our children grow older we care and nurture the growth that needs to come spiritually. Model bold growth for your kids and grow as a family to teach them that bold growth does not remain stagnate! Love you guys -Jeff
