I just read the following…
Take the time to identify the gifts and abilities within your kids as you lead them. Give them proper training that will release them into ministry. Then the Apostle Paul’s statement to Timothy will also ring true in their lives: “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity”— 1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV).
This winter with all the snow, my 5 year old son had found it great fun to shovel driveways with me. We bought him a shovel just his size. One day while shovelling, he declared, “Mommy, this is fun!” I have to say, that made it fun for me – just to hear his eagerness to help others. Not to mention we got great exercise!
Have any of you being doing/thinking the same thing?
What do you do as a family to model service in ministry?
I’d love to hear your ideas!
Here are some more ideas I came across…
