Greetings Prayer Warriors,
Today’s culture seems hyper-fed on visual media versus the written or auditory word. (Music excepted) If visual intake were caloric and what we read and hear fat burning, obesity would skyrocket in our culture. I bring this up because we are used to teaching our children by talking to them and all they process is that we are talking at them. You may give them good books to read, but unless they are for a school assignment, they may as well be dust collectors.
Be assured though, even though they feign disinterest, your children (and everyone else) watch whatever you do. Ask yourself, when someone quietly observes me, do they see Christ? Imagine you are the billboard, you are the YouTube video, you are the RSS feed, you are the sit-com, or perhaps the evening drama. Would you give yourself a “G” rating? Is the take-away message life-affirming? Do your actions reflect the Gospel messages and love of Christ?
He must increase, I must decrease. John 3:30
Lord, help us empty ourselves of all that is not You. May this continuous action be our ongoing prayer for families. Lord, make haste to help us, that we may allow Your luminosity to shine brightly through us!
This is the will of God, your holiness. 1 Thessalonians 4:3
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Increase His luminosity in the life of others. Pass it on!
