…Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing… Matthew 24:45 – 46
May we constantly consume the Word so that we may serve it, too. At this point in my life, I apply this challenge primarily to how generous and wise I am to give Vivienne spiritual food. As we anticipate the birth of our second child, I’ve been learning a great deal about the importance and promise of discipling our children’s hearts. Some ways I purpose to increase their daily dose of timely food…
* To continue reading Scripture by myself: in the morning, during nap time, in the books and blogs I choose to read
* To place a Bible in the nursery, on Vivienne’s end table, and by the kitchen table so that the first thing we read together is God’s beautiful wisdom
* To sing a “hymn a day”: I chose and printed the lyrics of seven hymns and placed them by the rocking chair in the nursery. I hope to sing one of them throughout each day of the week so that the children grow up with such rich truths singing through their minds.
I’m always on the look-out for other ideas! How do you consume and serve spiritual food to the people God has placed in your life?
