Let’s be intentional, let them see us in the Word of God. We can lead by example when it comes to spending time with God. Leading by example is a great form of teaching, and probably one of the best ways to teach our children about spending time with God. So we should let them see us in the Word of God as often as we can!
Let them see us in the Word of God
Let’s face it, no one likes to be pushed into doing things. I’ve faced and learned that lesson many times over. So I’ve done it the sneaky way, by leading by example. It’s something I did with my children and now my granddaughters. It doesn’t always work, and sometimes I might have taught them a thing or two that I never meant for them to learn. You know like, calling the guy that cut me off a meathead or losing my patience with the rude lady in the supermarket. I am perfectly imperfect! But there are things like spending time in the Word of God that I am intentionally leading by example with, and here’s how.
As much as I love my quiet alone time with God, in my comfy little closet sometimes I have to mix it up a little. There are times when I take my Bible study to the family room. Oh, I know that’s the most chaotic place in many a house. But when we let them see us spending time in the Word of God, we are sharing our Faith. We can only hope and pray that it’s one of the good things they pick up from us.
Not only will we be showing them that spending time with God is important to us, but there’s more. It’s also teaching them that spending time with God’s can be done anywhere, and if mom- grandma is reading God’s Word, well maybe it’s not so bad.
Let them see us in the Word of God – Final Thoughts
We watched our parents, teachers, and anyone we looked up to as children. And we’ve probably all picked up on some good and some bad things. As parents & grandparents, our children – grandchildren watch us and look up to us at a very young age. They will copy what we do, and unfortunately on the good and not so good. So, why not intentionally try to teach them how to spend time with God?
Now, don’t believe for one second that I am high and mighty (that’s God’s role) and that I’ve always gotten it right. As a matter of fact, I’ve done a lot of things completely wrong. But I am prayerfully working with God, and He is faithfully working in me. But when I really stop and let God help me I can get things right, and this is one of them. As you leave here today, join me and let’s vow to lead by example in teaching others about Him and, let them see us spending time with God.
