A very challenging question was out to parents at church today, and it was this: Ask your children what they thought it was that you loved most of all? They were to think about your daily routine, see the things you gave most time to and showed greatest knowledge of and interest in. If these are the things we love most of all, what would they say?
Was it a favourite football team? Was it your work? Was it your car or your home?
How many children would conclude after looking at the interests displayed by their parents that their parent loved Jesus most of all? How many see their parents giving more time to the study of the Word than to watching the soaps?
God questions, eh?
