This past weekend was Father’s Day. As a father of 3 (about to be 4), it is a day I look forward to, enjoy, but also a day in which I am challenged. It seems like each year for the past 5 years, Father’s day has been joyful for me, but at the same time, it always confronts me in unique ways. This past weekend was no different.
We enjoyed a wonderful morning together as a family, returned home for a great lunch, and I even got to mow my lawn in the afternoon (I know that may not sound like a fantastic Father’s day to some, but it is very relaxing and rejuvenating to me). I enjoyed playing with my kids in the early evening and then we went through our bedtime routine. It was that routine that reminded me of the challenge of being a father, in one way specifically. I have a responsibility to teach my children so much, and one of the vital roles, as a follower of Jesus, is to “Help my Kids Get Excited about Reading the Bible“.
That is why I love how David Murray writes this article to encourage, challenge, and equip myself and other fathers to do just that. If you are a father, let’s help our children get excited about God’s Word. If you are a mom, send this to your husband and encourage him as you tell him you want to help him lead in this way. And if you are not a parent, it’s still a great article to get excited about reading God’s Word ourselves.
Enjoy the article and as always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
