The greatest opportunities for influence occur within the confines of the four walls where we live.
What we need to consider, however, involves several areas of critical significance.
I am sure we all pray for our children every day. As I thought about the idea of leadership in the home and the influence we have on our children, it seemed fitting to share a few thoughts.
From the time children arise in the morning to the time they lay their heads down to sleep, teaching moments are everywhere.
The air that we breathe, the food we eat, the opportunity to see the sunrise, the ability to move our fingers and toes, witnessing God’s creation come to life, and hundreds more, are all moments to teach our children about the existence of God and His love for us.
Leadership in the home must lay this foundation, but it certainly includes more than teaching them about God, as we will consider in the days ahead, but these moments furnish a powerful place to start.
As we pray for children, let us also take appropriate action to lead them.
