My kids and my family are my LIFE

Posted on 5/13/2019 by Greg Yoder

There are a lot of moms, dads, grandmas or grandpas who not only say these words, but their lives are a testimony to it. Families encouraging their kids to do as much as possible. Schedules are filled, sometimes to the detriment of spiritual growth and spousal unity. When does that priority on our kids become an idol in our lives? Just like anything else, when we allow our family to replace Christ as our soul source for strength and hope. Jesus said, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife or kids, brothers and sisters – yes, even their own life – such a person can’t be my disciple.” Jesus is clear. HE is the center. That doesn’t mean ignore our family. It means prioritize. 

Suggested Reading: Luke 14:26-27
