A Lifestyle of Worship
Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
Nothing puts parenting, or life itself, in perspective quite like time spent praising our glorious God. The act of worship brings pleasure to our Maker
Judy’s family practiced that daily adoration when she was a girl. Even on vacation in a California wilderness, she remembers her family gathering in their small cabin after breakfast for the purpose of honoring God. Her older sister, Ruth, would open this time with a prayer. Then her brother, Jim, would lead the family in songs of praise on his guitar. Finally, Judy’s mother would read from the Bible and her father would talk about the meaning of the Scripture. “On many of those mornings, all I wanted to do was go out and play,” Judy says. “But it always set just the right tone for the rest of our day together. And today those worship times are among my sweetest memories.”
We have a Savior who is preparing a place for each of us in His kingdom
Before you say good night…
Father, You are a mighty and glorious God! Even as we sing praises to You, we tremble before Your name. Help us to set aside time as a family to honor You, that we may renew our perspective as Your beloved children. Amen.
