Good Reading…

This past week, as time has permitted, I’ve been reading a fascinating book.  It’s called “Family Driven Faith” by Voddie Baucham.  I first heard about this book last summer, as some groups at our church went through it together.  And I’ve heard Voddie Baucham speak several times.  He’s a really captivating speaker.  So, I knew this book would be good.  While it’s an easy read, it definitely has provoked deep thought into taking intentional steps to raise our children in such a way that they will grow up to love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and might.  What an awesome way to be a good steward of our roles as parents?! 

I’ve been reading about the importance of imparting a solid, Christian worldview to our children.  I thought this quote was powerful because it really goes along well with the purpose of this blog.  Baucham says, “Most people’s worldview is not based on critical analysis but on assumption.  We don’t spend our formative years evaluating the merits of cultural assumptions.  We simply see the way things are and fall in line.”

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be just another person falling in line with society.  As believers we are to be set apart, in our thinking and actions.  If we want our children to have a strong godly worldview, it has to start with us!  This has me thinking….where has the world’s view crept into my worldview?  Hmmm….
