*Everyone wants to be in love and be married
- until they get it and realize it takes work and sacrifice.
*People want ‘a baby’
-then they get one and realize it is a TON of work and sacrifice.
*People want to ‘do ministry’
-then they are slapped with the reality that it is a lot of work that is mostly unrecognized.
The old saying “be careful what you ask for” is so true.
Oh, the people who complain about the car payment and repairs after they got the car they wanted so badly.
Oh, the parents that complain about their child, or the lack of sleep, all the puke, poop, laundry, rebellion, etc… after they get what they asked God for.
And dare we ‘go there’ when talking about marriage? Remember the early days, begging God that ‘he/she’ would be the one only to find out there are days that he/she dives you crazy!
Life is hard work, the things worth having are worth working for.
Teach your children to embrace work, to be diligent and YOU have set the pace!
A full life is one that is filled with sacrifice!
Just as Christ set the example before us,
‘My life for your life’.
Titus 2:3 says that we are to be
"...teachers of good things...".
We believe that part of these good things are practical skills that we all need in every day life to care for our family and neighbors.
One of our primary responsibilities as parents is equip our children with the skills and tools to one day be productive, well rounded adults. Children need to be exposed to many different areas of work. Not only should they know how to work, but they should want to work.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us;
establish the work of our hands for us-
yes, establish the work of our hands.
