"In all we do
In all we say
May we glorify You
Lord we pray."
This short little tune states our desire to bring glory to the Lord, not to ourselves. As a mom I don’t want our family trying to impress others, but rather to express God’s heart to others.
Paul talks about this in chapter two of Titus. After telling Titus what he must teach to older men, older women and younger men in verses 1-10a, he gives Titus the reason why. Verse 10b says, “so that in every way they will make the teaching about God our Savior attractive.”
As we train our children in character, it is vital to not make “good children” be our goal. As we teach our children how to live the way God calls us to live, we also need to give them the reason why. Our reason is the same as Paul’s, to give glory to God our Savior.
