We’re smack-dab in the middle of a political season in the United States. But, are you openly talking to your kids about our responsibility as Christians—in this fallen world? While many believe Christians are to be “in the world but not of it,” Jesus clearly told us to go INTO the World. In His prayer in John 17:15, He says, “I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one” (ESV). I hope as you train your kids to live in this world, you’ll also help them understand they can make a difference by simply voting. Talk over with them how you’re voting this year. As you do, remember 2 Chronicles 7:14 and pray for revival.
