Which camp do your kids/youth land in?
1) The kids are loving being at church and they drag their parents to church OR
2) The parents drag the kids to church but the kids either don’t want to go or don’t care if they go
If your kids love going to church…make sure they are wanting to go for the right reasons. If they are just learning virtues and laughing a lot…then you can probably do better. My kids loved going to Disney but it doesn’t mean they were learning Scripture.
*I’ve personally watched godly parents be willing to put up with lack-luster preachers because their kids are being spiritually fed and love going to church.
This is between you, your spouse, and God. I, personally, LOVE when parents choose to get involved when they see something lacking. However, sometimes God leads you elsewhere. Whatever you choose…stop sitting on the sidelines! Get involved in your kid’s church life before they are no longer kids.
