As we think of resolutions and goals for the new year, remember to consider what you want to build into your children this year.
Some suggestions are:
mind to work
redeem the time (use time wisely)
How about focusing on a different quality each month. Use the word often with a simple meaning. Point out the trait in movies you watch or books you read together. Each month think of activities to reinforce the quality you are emphasizing. Find a Bible verse that speaks of the trait and memorize it together. Be creative in making a copy of the verse to put on the fridge.
May you have a year of redeeming the time you have with your children. Have fun together as you concentrate on consistently and creatively building character into their lives.
Ephes. 5:16 (KJV)
Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Ephes. 5:16 (NIV)
making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
