Be yourself, especially with your kids

Morning: Psalm 69:1-38; Exodus 1:6-22; I Corinthians 12:12-26

Last night at church, I wondered whether I had spoken too strongly about sharing faith with our kids.  Maybe I did?  But it was worth the risk.  Many of us lament our kids’ lack of interest in faith; but when they visit, we say, “I can’t make it Sunday – family’s coming.”  Does that make sense? … If we want our kids to embrace faith, why not risk practising it while they are with us?  Jesus’s Way is risky, for sure.  And our kids are worth the risk of being ourselves as people of faith.  Our authenticity may pique their interest.
