Taking Time For Jesus


Taking Time For Jesus

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
Matthew 18:6

In our society today we see the deterioration of the family, as divorce rates are climbing and families are being torn apart.  Parents are being bombarded with financial pressures, time issues, peer pressures imposed on their children, and the overall moral decay of our society.  However, even with all of these pressures it is still the duty and responsibility of parents to keep their family intact.  The Word of God tells us that the proper upbringing of our children is one of the most important responsibilities we have before us.  In the previous devotional I discussed the innocence of our children, and that they do not understand right from wrong  when they are babies.  They can be taught this, however, by godly parents, who have God in their lives and in their homes.  But I am afraid that many parents don’t have time for God, and this is having the wrong affect on their children.  This reminds me of a story about a mother who was running furiously from store to store on Christmas Eve trying to get those last minute gifts.  Suddenly, she realized that her little three year old son was missing.  She looked around and saw him standing with his little nose pressed against a frosty window.  He was gazing at a manger scene.  “Look mommy, its Baby Jesus in the hay.”  The mom grabbed his arm and jerked him away snapping, “We don’t have time for all that. Can’t you see that Mommy’s trying to get ready for Christmas.”  We must begin to take time for Jesus and teach our children about Him.  We must not permit the pressure of life to cause any of our precious children to sin, because of our neglect. Take just a little time each day to talk about Jesus to your children.
