We spend a lot of time talking about and studying the Word, but we need to be diligent about living it out as well. People, including our kids, are watching us for evidence of what it means to be a believer.
Warren Wiersbe says, “Too many Christians today emphasize guarding the truth, but downplay living the truth. One of the best ways to guard the truth is to put it into practice. It is good to be defenders of the faith, but we must not forget to be demonstrators of the faith. Lazarus did not have to give lectures on the resurrection. People had only to look at him and they believed”.
Demonstrate faith in action to your kids.
When all the people heard of Jesus’ arrival, they flocked to see him and also to see Lazarus, the man Jesus had raised from the dead.
