What are the “priorities” at
What priorities will be
established in our children when the following things
1. We are early for the game but
late to the worship.
2. We see to it that our
children do their homework but never check to seek if Bible
lessons are completed,
3. They are not allowed to stay
up late on school nights lest it infringe upon
their school work but are allowed to stay up and watch
the "LATE SHOW" on Saturday night, though
they will be attending Bible Class the next
4. We will not let them miss
school even though they do not want to attend, but
we cater to their whims and let them miss Bible
5. We know the names of their
school teachers, but cannot call the names of the
Bible Class teachers at church.
6. We will serve as room mother
or president of the PTA at school, but what
about helping with a function in the Bible Class.
7. We will attend their school
open house but not their open house on the last
day of V.B.S.
8. We will not schedule
vacations so as to make them miss school, but what about
V.B.S. and Gospel Meetings. .
9. They see us go to work even
though we do not feel well but stay at home
from church under the same circumstances.
10. They see us look at and
study their school work but never pay any attention
at all to their handwork brought home from Bible
YES, WITH SUCH SITUATIONS
PREVAILING, WHAT PRIORITIES ARE BEING
ESTABLISHED IN THE HEARTS OF OUR CHILDREN?
