In a word where darkness sometimes seems like the quickest and easiest path, we implore you as parents to take heart! Hope is not lost, as God has proven time and again that he is, in fact, greater than the false gods of this world.
I’m sure you’re familiar with Joshua 24. You may even have a portion of verse 15 memorized. Perhaps the familiar words adorn a sign, placemat or decorative piece in your home. But how do you truly choose this day to serve the Lord?
Choose This Day
Joshua 24: 15 is known to believers around the world. It’s where Joshua challenges his people to explore the merits of a multitude of false gods against the One True God. Today’s parents find themselves in a similar scenario as today’s culture continually assails us and urges us to follow its dark path of least resistance against the light of the Lord Jesus Christ. So, we need to make the same bold decision that Joshua made that day when he said, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” But, know that our kids’ generation considers hypocrisy the unpardonable sin, all the more reason to commit to obeying our Lord, lest we cause our kids to stumble also.
