Devotion 2.19.16

February 19        “Teach the Children Well” 
This Lent we’re looking at some of life’s most common regrets and talking about how repentance can bring forgiveness, hope, and comfort in Christ. Sunday’s message will turn to parenting. 
I fondly remember evening meals when I was growing up. Every meal started with grace, and then we dug into whatever Mom had prepared. We also dug into conversation. Most of the table talk was mundane, quickly forgotten. But you know, that’s when God did – and still does – some of His best for a family. Those were times when we kids learned how Christian adults deal with life, although we didn’t realize that we were being schooled. Gathered around a meal, talking about everyday things, there was and still is opportunity to share a good word with one another from God. 
You know our Lenten goal is to share the good word from God, not to beat you up for failures and sins (your regrets are already doing that). Is time with the kids, reflective time, teaching time, a place to reboot? “They grow up so fast…”  
CTRL+ALT+DEL: Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest and let Thy gifts to us be blest. Amen.
