“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:9
I’m a parent of young kids… I have three kids under 6 and it can be a wild ride at times! Some of the most challenging times for our family are meal times believe it or not. If you have young kids, you so get this. Trying to teach my kids how to eat and how to get more food in their mouth than on the floor is rather challenging at times…
However, as a parent, I know that what is messy today, will help my kids grow healthy for tomorrow. For now my job is to tell my kids how to eat, show them how to eat, and let them ‘practice’ with their food. But can you imagine if I only decided to tell my kids and show my kids how to eat, but never give them a chance to practice?
So often we teach students, we show them, but we don’t always spend a great deal of time helping actually ‘practice’ their faith… What should this look like?
