DAY 162***Parenting by Design… (12/29)
Living the truth
John 12:9: The large crowd of the Jews then learned that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He raised from the dead. (NAS).
We spend a lot of time talking about and studying the Word, but we need to be diligent about living it out as well. People, including our kids, are watching us for evidence of what it means to be a believer.
Warren Wiersbe says, “Too many Christians today emphasize guarding the truth, but downplay living the truth. One of the best ways to guard the truth is to put it into practice. It is good to be defenders of the faith, but we must not forget to be demonstrators of the faith. Lazarus did not have to give lectures on the resurrection. People had only to look at him and they believed”.
Demonstrate faith in action to your kids.
