Its been hard for me to focus lately. I just can’t get my head on straight.
One thing I realized last night, is that I have been failing at leading my family spiritually. (One of many things I’ve been failing at.) I am blessed with a wife, though, who has not let our family fail altogether. She continues to teach our children about God without my leadership.
But I know I need to step in. I have to lead my home.
And the fathers! provoke not your children, but nourish them in the instruction and admonition of the Lord. -Ephesians 6:4
I realized that whatever my wife teaches our children, I am still responsible for, as if I taught it myself. Not to say I don’t trust my wife, because I do trust her to teach our kids, as she should be doing. But, to a lesser degree, it’s kind of like leaving my own salvation in someone else’s hands other than Jesus, I’m accountable for what is taught to my children.
I see that I have been a failure so far, but the true failure would be my choosing to sit and watch. I’ve got a plan. Pray that I can accomplish my new goal.
