My wife and I have four children, with our oldest in college and youngest in elementary school.
Helping them develop their own walk with God is on our minds—a lot! So are questions about why so many young people are walking away from faith, and why parents often have a distant relationship with God.
I kept coming back to an answer that was so obvious… I almost missed it.
We’re at the end of a five-part series to help you boost biblical literacy in the home. I know, the expression, “biblical literacy” may be about as clear as “molecular geometry.” But the basic truth is this:
Because of declining Bible understanding and engagement among young people, they’re walking away from the faith in droves. Statistically, the belief we’re hoping to see our kids embrace is not sticking.
And that’s where Pillar 5 comes in.
Every runner needs a vision of the finish line.
Christians need a clear view of the finish line, too. Why? In both cases the finish line is the end of the race, and where the rewards are distributed.
Did I say rewards? Yes I did.
