When my son chooses music to listen to as he falls asleep, he always chooses worship music. This makes me incredibly proud and happy. My prayer is that my children will be serious about their worship of God. And not just on Sunday mornings, and not just with music.
One of the values every parent who follows Christ should be trying to instill in their children is worship. Often, people think worship as merely singing. Singing can be worship, and is a great place to start, but worship is so much more. I write a lot about worship, so I won’t go into a lot about what worship is, but so that we are on the same page, let me quickly define it for us. Hopefully, this will help us as we define worship for our children.
One aspect of teaching our kids to worship is to model a lifestyle of worship ourselves. Kevin continues:
As we worship, so will our kids. The Old Testament is filled with examples of children following in the footsteps of their parents. If you read through 1 & 2 Kings alone you will read story after story of an example being set by a father and an example being followed by a child.
What are you doing to teach your kids to be worshippers?
