There is a book I recommend by Francis Chan called, “You and Me Forever” and it is about marriage and family in the light of following God. How making God your priority as a family fixes a lot of your problems. (Matthew 6:33)
But in that book there is a quote that hit me like a ton of bricks, “If you’d rather watch your kids grow up than see the face of your savior today, you don’t grasp the beauty of God”
Wow… ouch… Sometimes we make our kids our priority, when really they and we would be better served by making God our priority. It is all about a paradigm shift that allows us to see that when we put God first, “all these (other) things will be added to us,” This week whether we are a parent, grandparent, or teenage lets do something that SHOWS our family our priority and shared mission!
