Busy, Busy, Busy
There's a chill in the air that just seems to bring certain things with it. Football games and other fall sports, extra band practices for parades, recitals for dance and that is just some of the things you may be doing with your children or grandchildren. Then there is the "church stuff". Fall Bazaars, Homecomings, revivals, trips to the mountains to see the leaves change colors, and then here comes Christmas with it's extra choir practices and play practices along with all of the other regular "stuff". Oh how BUSY we are!
What comes first when there is such a long list of things to do? Where do our priorities lie? It's sometimes hard to get everything done that we feel like is neccessary and we can often feel like we are pulled in several directions.
One thing we can't afford to let slip by the wayside though is our relationship and worship with Christ.
No matter what direction we are being pulled in, the direction we always need to remember is UP. When your feeling a little overwhelmed, look up, take a deep breath and remember that God has it all under control. Let's not forget that our priorities should be arranged in an order that would please Him. Sunday School and Church should definitly be on the top of that list. If there is any way that we can set a Christian example before our children and grandchildren, it is to show them that Christ is at the top of our priority list and of course they can follow right behind. In the long run, when all is said and done, they will remember that Sunday School and Church was your way of serving the Lord and that learning more of Him was so important to you and was at the top of your priority list, they will know that is should be just as important to them. Leave a Legacy.
Make sure they are in Sunday School and Church next Sunday!
Teach them what Christmas is all about! The celebration of the birth of our WONDERFUL SAVIOR AND LORD!!!!!!!!
