The people you hang out with will rub off on you, but you can choose to remove all the bad things you have picked up when you arrive home, just like you remove dirty shoes and don’t spread mud throughout your house. When you spend time with wise people you become wise, but when we spend time with the un-saved (as we must), we need to be careful that we don’t allow ourselves to become covered in them.
During the Summer of 2015 we look at various rooms in the house picking up valuable tips and tools for interacting with God ant those around us
Sometimes we need to just stop what we are doing and spend time together as a family. Pastor Claire looks at various ways parents and children can spend quality time together and make each other feel valued. We must all lift their head out from distractions like phones, tablets and books and truly engage with each other. Parents need to take time to go outside with their children and spend quality time with them. Arrange a quality “date” with your child on a regular basis with your children individually.
The Bathroom is where we get clean: 1) Getting clean should be fun and enjoyable. It should be something we look forward to. god wants us to like being pure. 2) Dirt is dirt. It doesn’t matter if it is a little thing or a big thing, we still need to wash it off the same. We shouldn’t compromise because we think it’s only a small issue. 3) We need to be quick to say sorry and quick to forgive so we can live in a right relationship with one another.
Do you still feed your children or do they feed themselves now? When did you teach them to feed themselves? How about reading the Bible and hearing from God, do the feed themselves spiritually yet? And how about you, do you what to be fed on a Sunday or do you feed yourself daily by reading the Bible?
When we sleep it should deb a peaceful and relaxing time, but what if it’s not? – Perhaps you worry so much it stops you from getting to sleep, or when you do sleep it sins good quality sleep. God wants whats best for us and that includes a good night of sleep every night.
