Are you killing your family’s soul?

More than half our day, yesterday, consisted of us lying around in our pj’s! At first I felt guilty for it, shouldn’t we be doing something. I mean is this good for my kids to just sit around on Saturday morning? The answer is, YES!

Our kids aren’t ADD our world is! Jim Burns calls it the ‘attention deficit world.’ You are so busy doing good things that you are missing the best things in life. The pace of life is killing the soul of families. It makes good people act crazy and makes otherwise healthy individuals become vulnerable-vulnerable to sickness, vulnerable to broken relationships, and vulnerable to sin.

Too often families are poisoned by a hypnotic belief-that good things come only through unceasing activities and are heightened by the pace of life. I encourage you today to go against the grain of the culture and find time for replenishment. Someone in the family has to have the courage to change the pace of life and your kids are’t going to do it.
