Once the Apostle Paul was arrested and dragged away in chains because he preached the truth about Jesus. Back then the only legal religion was the worship of the false Roman gods such as Zeus, Mercury, Saturn and Mars – for whom the planets were named.
Paul had to defend himself before King Agrippa, saying, “I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision,” and declared the truth to everyone he met – even if it did get him in trouble. (Acts 26:19-20).
As your children get a bit older, ongoing discipleship is important but parents often don’t know where to begin. That is why a family devotional time is so important. In just ten minutes a day, you can easily lead your family through an inspiring story. The important thing is to simply be faithful.
Efforts which strive for amazing devotions to wow your family will usually fizzle out. Simple devotions shared every night without fail will have a spectacular effect on your children over time.
You will be surprised at how your children will help you. Even after a week or two, if you should forget, your children are likely to say, “Don’t forget our Bible story!”
