You work so hard to pay for the big house, in the right neighborhood with the right schools.
You save enough to send your kids to college, so they become successful, get a good career, get married, and give you grandkids.
It’s the perfect life. Maybe your parents did it for you, and you want the same for your family.
There’s something missing from that though…
Heard a story at church yesterday about a boy who was raised in church from a wealthy family. He had everything he needed and then some.
He was told about Jesus, but didn't get it…
So one day his upper middle class parents came to him and said,
“Son we’re going to open up our home to the homeless.”
He saw his parents serving. They did more then tell him about Jesus, they showed him. He got it.
We do our children a disservice if we give them a perfect life, in the perfect schools, in the perfect sports, and the perfect friends, and pay for their perfect college, but fail to teach them when they discover that life isn't perfect...to cry out to Jesus.
How do you let your actions speak louder than your words?
