Consider This #16

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians (3:1-2)

Here's something to think about this weekend:

"...God has entrusted us to prepare the hearts of our children for the Savior. We are tools used by God to whittle away the calluses of the heart, keeping the heart tender and inclined to obedience. When we call our children to obey us, we are preparing them to obey Jesus, which is our ultimate goal. When they accept Jesus and surrender to His Lordship, they find it easier to heed His commands because they are already in the habit of obeying. Let's go before the Lord just as John the Baptist did and 'prepare the way.'" ~Ginger Plowman, from her book, Don't Make Me Count to Three
