A Moment: Webster defines it as a “point of time.” I prefer to unpack it a bit more. The Latin origin of moment comes from movimentum, where we get our word momentum, and it literally means “to turn the scales.” Simply put, a moment can makes a difference in our lives. Now why the English lesson? Let me explain…
Beginning in January of 2013, I will be giving parents a new “tool” for their families’ spiritual tool box: Family Moments.
The first Sunday of each month, families have the option of downloading a Family Moments packet to print off at home. These Family Moments Packets will have a central theme for that month and will contain 4 Family Night Moments. The family can do these once a week or all in one week if they choose.
Each Family Night Moment will have three main facets: First, there will be a fun, family friendly dinner recipe. This will be an easy recipe for all to participate in making. Next, there will be a Bible study which will include activities and applications for all to do during the week. Third, there will be key verses for the family to memorize.
“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” Deut 6:5-7 NASB
If we are to take ownership of raising our children to Love the Lord all their days, then let’s continue to make a difference in their lives; it begins with a moment.
