If you are a parent, do your children believe that the most important thing to you is God? If I were to come visit your home today and ask each of your children, “What’s the most important thing to Daddy? What’s the most important thing to Mommy?” I wonder how they would respond.
I wonder how many children would say,
“My dad loves God with all of his heart. The most important thing on earth to my momma is her relationship with God and her worship of Him.” As parents, we must celebrate God in front of our children.
Let me tell you what my children think and what they know. They know that their daddy is imperfect. I mean, they really know that. I’ll tell you what else they know. They know that I love God. I wouldn’t be ashamed for you to ask them that. You can ask any one of them, “What’s the most important thing to your dad and mom?” They would tell you, “The most important thing to my parents is their relationship with God.” I really believe they would say that.
Joshua 24:15 says, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
