What Jesus do they see?

April 14, 2012

 

 

I’ve been talking with my kids a lot lately about trusting God and obeying his word….

 

We’ve talked about going to him with our struggles and allowing him to fill us and give us the strength we need.

 

And yet I can’t help but wonder what Jesus my kids are seeing in our day to day lives.

 

I mean, sure we talk about him and we sing about him, but do they see him in me?

 

 

As we go through our school day and things get stressful and chaotic, do they see me going to Jesus for the strength that I tell them so often about?

 

And do they see the patience and the love that I tell them that Jesus always showed to those around him?

 

 

I’m realizing more and more that my life speaks volumes to my kids.

 

And every day—every moment—is an opportunity to show them Jesus.

 

 

My greatest prayer—my most desperate prayer—is that my kids see Jesus in me and that they long to know more of him because of the example I live out before them
