Devotion from Julie Mark

 

Today’s devo is an encouragement to share Jesus with your children each & every day in family worship time, family devotions…whatever you might call it, it is such a great way to share Jesus with your family.

 

Family: Whoever is present

Maybe one spouse works odd hours, or an older child is away with a friend, or the baby is sleeping, or the neighbor kids are over. It may look different every day. If you don’t have kids at home, maybe it’s with the neighbors you consider family. Maybe you’re single, but chat with a friend each day. Worship a bit together.

 

Time: Whenever and wherever it works best for your family

Try to find a time when most of the family is together, maybe just before or after a meal. Make worship time fit your family. Maybe the only time you are all together is when things quiet down just before bed. It doesn’t even need to be the same time and place every day. For a while when our boys were young, it was a few minutes each morning waiting for the bus at the end of our neighbor’s driveway. When I was little and our family gathered at Grams and Pops house, family worship time was always at breakfast, and we sang the Doxology together…what a fun memory. Do what works for your family.

 

Worship: A focus on God’s Word

Read scripture, discuss it, sing songs together, and try to memorize scripture together. As a family group, turn your thoughts and energy toward Christ. Keep it simple.

 

  • Read scriptures from the Bible or a storybook Bible. Worship begins when God speaks to us through His Word.
  • Pray – talk to God. Share your thoughts and feelings with Him. Thank Him. Praise Him. Ask Him for what you and others need. Even your youngest preschoolers pray with their small groups. Take turns praying or have one person pray for everyone.
  • Sing together to God. Singing is another way to respond to God. Anything from “Jesus Loves Me” to a worship CD to worship music videos on YouTube are all beautiful ways to sing to God.

 

Keep it simple. Be intentional and fill it with God’s Word and love for each of us. Let me know what you try and how it is going. Have fun worshiping together.
