This message was presented at the. Door by few in Louisville Kentucky for other resources like this it is the right. Ok let's. Begin our 3rd session here. In the 1st 2 sessions we talked about the primary goal is to bring our kids to Jesus and one of the methods for doing that is disciplining them as a form of discipleship and our 2nd section we talked about the best way to pass that on to our children is modeling to show them how to live out that relationship and let's have a word of prayer before we get into our 3rd session on how to tell the story there's 70 Father God as we as we stand here about to talk about how to tell the story this is not our story it's your story and so God we pray that you will infuse your spirit into this room into this place let it be your story that is heard in your name Amen I love this quote from Ellen White. Too much importance cannot be placed on the early training of children the lessons that the child learns during the 1st 7 years of life have more to do with forming his character then all it learns in future years and if that quote from Ellen White isn't enough. Here are 4 key findings from the barn a group that support this a person's moral foundations are generally in place by that time they reach age 9 and in fact the Girl Scouts of America did similar research and found that by age 10 they have a fully shaped worldview so by age 9 or 10 fully shaped world view a person's response to the meaning and personal value of Jesus Christ's life death and resurrection is usually determined before a person reaches 18 in fact a majority of Americans make lasting determination about the personal significance of Christ death and resurrection by age 12 so again they're deciding their own they're making their decision by age 12. In most cases people spiritual beliefs are air vocally formed when they are preteens and adult church leaders usually have serious involvement in church life and training when they're young the statistics gathered showed that more than 4 out of 5 of those leaders had consistently been involved in the ministry to children for an extended period of years prior to age 13 so what this is saying is that people who grow up to be church leaders often before they were 13 years old were already involved in ministry. And I think often we have this idea when Raney using our kids that well. We'll tell you about that when you get older we'll let you get involved when you get older but these 4 facts and the quote from Ellen White Let us know that bringing our kids to Jesus starts at birth. And every possible moment every way we want to get them involved we want them to be a part of that and we want not just to be telling them but involving them in telling other people about Jesus now these things we don't want to be discouraging to those of you who have kids older than this well it's too late then it's not right it's never too late for the Holy Spirit but when your kids are young if you know what your goal is then you can start working toward that before they're even born. Start today if you haven't started before it's never too late but we know that the earlier we the earlier where working toward this. The better chance we have. So it was going to talk to you a little bit about discipleship as a parent and media Ok so there's a whole other seminar that you can go to about the nitty gritty of media I'm not going to get into all the details but we know our kids are exposed to a lot rate when they watch t.v. if they watch t.v. they're exposed to a lot and it's not just about the content of the shows that they're watching it's also the advertisements that they're watching and you know it's also the time Yes And and that's what I was going to talk about it's also about time spent so you're making my point before I can but that's awesome. So t.v. video games books music social media you don't usually see books on this list because we generally think books good t.v. not as good books aren't usually on the big list of like media that you need to be looking out for and and I love books. Like I love We read all the time at my house my children can say in read. A lot which I'm so thankful for but as with everything we want to make sure that what our kids are exposed to is working toward our goals it's supporting our family values like we talked about in the last session and it's moving us closer to our goal of having our kids have a saving relationship with Jesus Christ Ok so if your t.v. helps you accomplish that great if your video games help you accomplish that great if your books do awesome music also can be awesome right we don't have a problem if it is supporting our family values and helping lead our kids to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. But if it is not doing those things or if the time you're spending like you said if the time you're spending on those things is taking time away. From. Other things that they need to be doing that we need to be doing as a family to better support our values to better push us toward that goal of a saving relationship with Jesus then we need to think about the media how it's allowed into our home the time we spend on it and maybe setting some boundaries or limits and at least being intentional about about how we're using media does that make sense everybody so just thinking about that and there are a few things that you can do 1st of all if you feel like what you're doing works for you you're using you're using t.v. and social media and music and books and your kids are using them in such a way that is supporting your ultimate goal then leave it alone it's fine but if you feel like you know maybe there's an issue here or you know oh yeah there's definitely an issue here maybe maybe you know maybe you notice that it's a huge deal when you try to take the tablet away from your child and you say Ok screen time is up and it's I mean it's a meltdown every time. It happens. Maybe you your child is more interested in emulating a cartoon character than Jesus Ok think about what we're putting in front of our kids and it's not just about not allowing bad stuff in that's part of it right because we want to keep our kids exposed to things that are healthy and happy we're not going to be able to shelter them from bad things forever there's a value in keeping you know negative media in appropriate media out I'm not saying that there isn't but it's not all about that it's about what do you have time and and what are you spending your energy on bringing in as well. So. One thing that you can do if you think you might have an issue or if you're not sure is you can do a screen time audit and it's it's kind of a pain it's a little bit time consuming but you go you just write down every day how much screen time your kid has Don't try to do anything different just when you say you know Ok you can have an i Pad for 10 minutes while I take a shower because sometimes that's the only way you can take a shower mom's right. And so when you do that is it really 10 minutes. Most people and I don't have the statistics right off the top of my head I'm sorry but if you if you Google it you'll find that most people underestimate their screen time by kind of a big percentage I don't remember what it is so I'm not going to say a number but most people underestimate their screen time. You can turn on your own screen time. Limiting kind of apps if you have an i Phone with. It will keep track it'll send you a message and say your screen time is up 30 percent this week or whatever it's kind of astounding if you actually stop and pay attention we almost all people underestimate the time we spend on our screens and with our kids it's easy to do that too we think oh they only use my phone for a couple of minutes while I do this or while I do that but really it might be adding up to more time than we're thinking so those conducting is screen time out it just take 3 or 4 days write down how much time they're spending every day and see if you're really Ok with that is it really just a couple of minutes is it really what you think it is and then what are they doing with that how much of that do you actually know what they're doing. With that tablet or with that phone or on that t.v. Have you watched the ads in very simple music videos on You Tube Do you know what ad is going to pop up there's no way to know on some things rate so just thinking about all of those different aspects that we don't really think about. It's important. That's my next thing. Oh it's been stern Now that's why I can't remember what I'm supposed to say next. Another way that we can intentionally tell that story to our children is family worships and. Family worships are one of those things that again easier said than done and I think often like it's one of those things that kind of gets squeezed in like Ok let's check that off the list but let's let's take a few moments in at your tables share what are some family worships what was Family Worship like in your home growing up if you didn't grow up with family worship what is it like in your home. But just share for a moment what what family worship was like for you including how did you feel about it did you enjoy it did you not enjoy it how did you feel what was Family Worship like how did you feel about it. Ok so let's let's debrief a little bit so is there anybody who's willing to talk about their memories of family where. Growing up as a child depending if you don't want to share that's Ok Ok nobody wants to share that's fine. Well. The question is So you basically just share what you shared with the person that you are talking to you at your table so but if nobody wants to share with the whole group that's fine I'll share so growing up my family. We had family worship most of the time not every day and we usually had family worship in the mornings. My my dad worked long hours and so he wasn't really home. A lot of the time at bedtime or in the morning so we usually did Family Worship in the morning before my sister and I went to school and we read from a devotional book. Usually whatever the devotional book for kids our age was. For kids our age was for it that year you know from the a.b.c. that's what we read so we read a page from our devotional book and we prayed together and that was our family worship experience and I enjoyed it. But I don't think I really felt like it was something that I couldn't live without Does that make sense like it wasn't something that if we skipped it I don't think I felt its absence because we weren't super regular about it that makes sense everybody Ok Did anybody have something a positive memory you don't have to share it I just want you to show who has a positive memory of family worship growing up who has some not so positive memories of family worship yet some people don't have positive memories and it's Ok to say that it's Ok to say that some people just don't remember it as a good thing and so it's something to keep in mind as we're thinking about with our own family you get to do family worship now with your own kids with your own spouse and so how are you going to take the best of family worship. That gave you those warm fuzzy memories as a child and how are you going to take your memories of maybe not enjoying it so much and help that shape the way that you present family devotional time for your kids because both of those experiences where there was positive or negative can be valuable in shaping. How you how you guide your kids through a family worship experience does that make sense. And if you didn't have family worship at all which a lot of us didn't growing up if you didn't have family worship at all is it something that was hard for you to implement when you formed your own family so just thinking about all of these different factors. Now. I think family worship is so important Christian families should be having family worship because it's one of the main ways that we can gather together and talk about spiritual things in a really intentional way. And so and we're we're teaching our kids essentially how to lead a family worship when they're older when they have kids and so 5 tips for meaningful family worship 1st one is choose the right setting so this can be pretty simple. When our kids were really little we usually did it in our son's bedroom. We did we did it. Just on the floor in his room because. He was always on the floor and we just got on the floor with him and we did our family worship together there and it means sense for us at that time now we do it in our living room we say in our favorite spots in the living room in our kids usually sit on one of our laps. And that's where we do it we've moved to the living room away from the bedroom because we always invite whoever is at our house if it's family worship time you're invited to stay and it's a lot easier to cram random people who are there for family worship into our living room then on the bedroom floor that makes sense but we used to do it but but now we because we just invite whoever if you're at our house and it's family worship time you're invited to stay you're not forced to stay but you're invited and usually people take us up and they stay and so we use our living room now. And it works for us but choose the right setting choosing the right setting also includes making it a good setting so if you use your living room then maybe make sure that it's not super distracting with you know as a mom I can't focus as well if their toys all over the floors so maybe that means you pick up before family worship time it means you know if the t.v. was on turn it off if you're listening to the radio turn it off. You know make it a good setting for family worship you don't have to make it perfect just make sure that it's conducive. Number to make family devotions a habit so. I shared my example of what family worship was like for me as a kid and it was pretty fairly regular but it wasn't a habit it wasn't just a natural part of our routine that fit into our lives and so I realized that making it a habit or seeing routine kind of makes it sound a little bit like I mean that it's a casual thing that you don't even think about and that's not how I mean it I just make it a part of your day that you cannot mix that's what I mean by that. Because our kids are so young and because we started when they were B.B.'s. We put family worship as part of our bedtime routine so every kid goes to bed at some time most families have some kind of a bedtime routine. We may need family worship a part of ours now I know a family that doesn't really have a bedtime routine because they're a little bit more relaxed about that kind of thing than I find it possible to be but they have their family worship when they all have breakfast together and that's fine it doesn't have to be at a certain time of day do it when it works for your family we try to do it at a time when my husband is usually home although he's a pastor and you can never tell what his schedule is going to be like from one day to another and it might change that afternoon so we try to make it when he's home but if he's not home we still do family worship and because my kids know that. After they clean up we have family worship after we have family or ship they brush their teeth after they brush their teeth they go to the bathroom and after that they go to bed that's just part of it if we get to going to bed and we have not had family worship our sons both of them will protest and say we didn't have family worship and that doesn't matter it doesn't matter if we're on the road it doesn't matter if we're in a hotel it doesn't matter if we're at Green Green Peace House it doesn't not matter where in the world we are if they're going to bed and they haven't had family worship they will tell us and that's I love that because that means that they miss it when it's gone. And and I think that we should all feel that way. So make it happen Number 3 Keep worship relational so relational can mean a lot of different things but keep it. Relational because they need to be able to apply it to their own lives and a lot of I'm not sure some of you said you had it bad memories of family worship I know that in a group that I led it out in a small group for. Moms like me we we shared the same thing we shared our thoughts about what family worship was like and and one of the moms in my group said that she did not like family worship as a child because her father read this straight from the Bible. For 20 to 30 minutes every night and that was their family worship now we love the bible reading from the Bible is a great thing but reading for 2030 minutes to little kids from a version that they can't really understand or comprehend is not relatable it is not enjoyable for them and that does not mean that we don't appreciate what the Bible says it's got to make sense to them and it's got to work with their with their attention span. If I stood up here and read to the Bible to you for 20 or 30 minutes without explanation or discussion you probably wouldn't be that interested either in front if we're being honest for a 4 year old for a 6 year old an 8 year old a 13 year old that's not going to work we want it to be enjoyable and relational and that does not mean that we're watering down the spirituality of our worship. Prioritize prayer that's the 4th thing prayer is important in needs to be part of our family worship experience our kids are not going to learn how to talk to Jesus talk to God unless we show them so make prayer an important part of your family worship and number 5 let the kids lead out now I'm not seeing please all of the control in your children's hands because that's probably a bad idea especially with really young kids for our 4 year old and our 2 year old they get to choose the song that we saying. They get to choose who reads our story or our Bible story daddy or mommy usually is the choice if there are other guests who know how to read. It's open game they're allowed to say no but our kids get to choose who reads the story they get to choose the song and they get to choose who prays in which order when we do our family prayer these are not huge things but it allows our kids to have control it allows them to feel like they're leading our in our worship experience and when they are invested because they're leading they're more interested and they're excited and we give them a week at a time to lead out and guess what we take a week to so they're also learning a little bit of patience to wait for their week to come around we we get to choose different songs that we want to teach them so that we don't sing only a boy named day of it every single night of our lives. And and it helps them to learn to everybody takes a turn not just mommies and daddies not just little kids but everybody is important our whole family is important and an important part of our family worship so let them take some ownership in it might look different in your family what you let them lead out in but but give them some ownership an older kids could maybe plan a little bit more than that but our kids that's what we do with them and it works for us. Oh yeah Ok so I did I really didn't bring a lot of things to show you but some of our favorite. Resources this is one of our favorite Bible story books it's called the Jesus story book Bible and. We like this one a lot because it is so fantastic about weaving the story of salvation into every single Bible story that's included in the book so no story goes by without talking about how it fits in to God's plan and it calls it God's secret rescue plan. But it just talks about how God loves us so much and it talks about his love for us and how he was going to rescue us from our sin in every single story in such a way that that our children as young as they are can articulate how God loves us through the story of David and Goliath through the story of creation and the fall and everything else so we really like that book. Another book another set that we really love. Which is you know like an Adventist staple is that my Bible friends books they're read if you guys seen those so they're they're awesome kids little kids and older kids can be really engaged with those stories. And then also we just gave our son the clear word Bible for kids his own his 1st Bible that's not just a story bible. It's a full Bible but it's pretty simple for him to understand in so we like those resources there are some things on the handout some resources some links that you can see if you're interested in looking more. At the digital handout. I think when we talk about raising our kids the Sabbath is one of those things that really comes into play and I think if we were to spend a few moments talking about what the Sabbath was like for us growing up we would have a lot of different stories. How the Sabbath is kept What were the expectations what it felt like there would be a lot of pros and for honest there's going to be some cons to. A lot of us grew up where the Sabbath was more about the rules than the relationship. It's it's easy to do. And as a parent it's really easy to do because you want your kid to grow up to learn to keep the Sabbath and so you're trying to set those boundaries and what what does that look like the so. Let's look at Isaiah Chapter 58 verses 13 and 14. When it comes to understanding the Sabbath this is one of my favorite texts on it. If you refrain from trampling on the Sabbath from pursuing your own interests on my holy day if you call the Sabbath a delight and the holy day of the Lord honorable if you honor it not get going in your own ways serving your own interest or pursuing your own affairs then you should take delight in the Lord and I will make you ride upon the heights of the earth I will feed you with the heritage of your ancestor Jacob from the mouth of the Lord has spoken to illustrate this I'm going to tell a fictitious story I want to point out this is fictitious before I begin. So. I'm going to go out and date with my wife we're going to go to a super fancy restaurant thinking probably the Bonaire on the corner here. Don't worry we'll get a booth this is going to be classy. And so we're sitting there we're on our date and all of a sudden I get a notification on my phone and it's one of my friends telling me about a new game so of course I'm going to download this and I start playing it and this is a fantastic game and so I'm texting my friend back like hey thanks for don't know about this is wonderful and am I having fun is this a good date no no this is terrible and I think that that gives us a picture of the Sabbath the Sabbath is a date with God. And so it's easy to try to set up all the things that are appropriate and not appropriate but that that aware yout if you try to do that with a date for your wife like hey let's sit down to make a list of all the things we can do and can't do on the days we will lose track of the point of the date. It's about that relationship it's about spending time together and if you're having to make a list of all the things you shouldn't do well it might be a problem with the relationship the Sabbath is a date with God And so what you want to do is figure out what are the things you and God can do together to help your children as they're growing up to figure out what are those things now another thing about a date is the dynamics change when one of the people in the date changes like I also enjoy going out on dates with my boys spending some quality time one on one with them working on that relationship Also I am not going to do the same thing with my 4 year old that I'm going to do with my wife it doesn't mean that that relationship is less significant doesn't mean that that relationship is less real but the dynamics change when one of the people in the date changes that makes sense. So how I keep the Sabbath with my relationship with God is not going to be the same way that you do. There are going to be some but the principles remain the same Does that make sense Ok I'm not saying that the Sabbath is not important not saying that at all in fact if we use this is our parameter for keeping the Sabbath we're actually raising the bar of the Sabbath because then taking a nap on Sabbath. Is that spending quality time with God and starts getting personal. So talking about and we have to be honest with ourselves as we analyze the way we're keeping the Sabbath is this something that Jesus and I are doing together is this something that is bringing me closer to God. But then as we're raising our children coming alongside them as we are getting to know them is their personalities or developing helping them to understand what are some ways they can spend that time with Jesus what is that date with Jesus look like and it might be going out and exploring nature together it might be finding a way that you as a family can serve together. But if we're really treating it as a date with Jesus then it's going to involve bringing their personalities into the picture as well it's going to involve understanding who they are and how that fits in to keeping the Sabbath Ok and this does not mean that we do whatever we want on the Sabbath. That's not what I'm saying at all but I mean the Texas very clear if you refrain from trampling on the Sabbath from pursuing your own interests on my holy day. But it is about being intentional about how do we keep the Sabbath in a way that we are spending time. With our Savior. How do we keep the Sabbath in a way that we are developing that relationship and raising children who are using that as their expectation for what the Sabbath is using that so that they're growing up learning how to keep the Sabbath another element of this is if we're talking about telling the story if we're talking about using every possible moment then the boundaries of worship are going to have to be removed teaching your kids about Jesus isn't just something that happens at family worship it's not just something that happens on Sabbath it's something that's integrated into every aspect of our lives so it's. It's you know one when we're talking about and we keep going back to this text Deuteronomy Chapter 6 verses 4 through 9 we keep going back to it when you when you lay down and when you rise in every moment of the day you're spending working toward this goal so that means when you're in the car that means when you're making dinner that means any time that you're with your kids we want to be we want to we want to be pointing them to Jesus and so we want to teach them to be continually. Touching base with God right we want we want them to be in constant contact so it's it's worship is incorporated into the fabric of our lives so Family Worship is great and Sabbath is wonderful but those are not the only times that we're making spiritual lessons that we're teaching that we're leading our kids to Jesus We don't wait til family worship to do it. So it's it's woven into our discipline like we talked about earlier and that doesn't mean that you're using Jesus and the Bible to you know bludgeon your kids into submission holy submission rate. We're teaching them through grace and mercy and and through firmly redirecting them and teaching them a better way to handle things we're leading them to Jesus and we're letting them know that we mess up too and Jesus is the one that we look to you to help us do better. And the. We were trying to teach our spiritual application to our daily life in such a way that our kids are attracted to Jesus We want them to realize that being close to God makes our lives better. And so teaching it in such a way that it's not you know Jesus is watching you you know that's not really a healthy motivation is it. We want our kids to think that God is on their side and he's working for them and he's not just keeping a record of our wrongs but also giving us what we need to be close to him. So that. The biggest factor and I feel like we've said this before but it's worth saying again the biggest factor of being able to weave worship into the fabric of your everyday life is having a personal relationship yourself you can't do it if you don't have it. And Ellen White said in the desired ages fathers and mothers should look upon their children as younger members of the Lord's family committed to them to educate for heaven the lessons that we ourselves learned from Christ we should give to our children as the young minds can receive them little by little opening to them the beauty of the principles of heaven that's the Christian home becomes a school where the parents serve as under teachers while Christ Himself is the chief instructor it doesn't work if we're not learning from Christ. It says the lessons that we ourselves learn from Christ we should give to our children if we're not learning the lessons from Christ we can't teach Christ's lessons to our kids so it keeps coming back to we need a personal relationship if we want to reach the goal of leading our kids into a personal relationship with Christ. And we and we talked a little bit about this in our last session this idea of letting your kids see your personal relationship with Jesus Christ letting them see you do your devotions and one of the things that has come out of that is. We got my son Emmet the Gospel of Mark and so he saw me doing my devotions and he wanted to do it just like me and so this book is just the Gospel of Mark. And as we read through a story he wants to underline things because that's what I do in my devotions and so he goes and gets a cram and will read through his story and he talks about what are the elements that stand out to him and then because he can't read I point out where that is and he makes an effort to underline it with his crown but it's that idea of from the very beginning how do we equip them to have that relationship with Jesus themselves and we can't share what we don't have. So in Mark chapter 10 starting with verse 13 is a passage are all familiar with. He said to them let the little children come to me and do not hinder them for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these truly I tell you anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. I think that. Often when it comes to talking to about. Jesus. We we fail in one of those reasons why is because. We aren't connecting them to Jesus we will do one of 2 things we either will do programming that connects just to kids like Ok this is meeting kids at their level and it's connecting them or we do something where we're keeping it way up here and it's just connecting to Jesus the example Briana gave about the father who read for 20 to 30 minutes straight from the Bible that was not connecting the kids to G.'s that was connecting to Jesus but not connecting to the kids and good for worship with children needs to connect to both to Jesus and to the kids and I think often when we are achieving both of those goals. We're hindering them from coming to Jesus we're teaching them. Not maybe intentionally but we're still teaching them that because you know we're keeping worship way up here where they're not understanding it that it's for when they get older we're teaching them that it's not important for them it's it's for older people it's the exact same thing the disciples were doing that day where mothers were trying to bring their children to Jesus and the disciples and tell no no he doesn't have time for them and Jesus on the other hand had a very different message he did have time for them but also it hinders when we just keep it there and we're not connecting our kids to Jesus and I think we can all think of children songs that we have heard that we're like Ok how does this actually teach them about Jesus. Father Abraham let's be real hate that song. But how. Does it connect them to Jesus. We need to be intentional about our worship about the way we are communicating with our kids and making sure that kids are not stupid Do we need to change our language do we need to maybe explain things differently than we regularly do yes but they're able to understand. And when you have those moments with your kids where you see their eyes light up because they're grasping who Jesus is and how much he loves them. I remember with both my boys those 1st moments when I was talking to them about heaven. And they got excited about heaven for the 1st time with with my youngest Arlo it happened not that long ago actually it's putting him down to bed and we're talking about heaven and some of the exciting things and just 2 nights ago as I was putting him to bed again he had a bunch of questions about heaven is Jesus going to prepare a place for us what's it going to be like. His parents this is our goal. This is our goal to be connecting our kids to Jesus and so let's have our worship make sure that it is doing both of those things it can't just be about entertainment and it can't just be about theology. It has to be worship that is bringing that theology down to a place where it's digestible by every single member in our homes. So. One thing I just want to add because we talked about something my husband and I did we we weren't supposed to put it in the presentation but I'm doing it anyway. We we just had this conversation and Ben said something about what if Jesus. Had had not used parables But what if you'd only talked about the spiritual ideas that he wanted to teach us in you know his a way that he could understand but we couldn't. Jesus came down to the level of the people around him he told stories that they could relate to and that made sense to them and we don't have a problem with that but sometimes we have an issue and we say oh we're watering things down don't water things down you don't have to but simplify. Making things simpler and breaking them down into easier to understand pieces for our kids is only doing what it takes to connect them Ok so we're going to we're going to just take one minute and we're going to ask you to share at your table something that you're taking away from this session whether it's good or bad we're not going to ask you about it so you can say what you need to say to the people around you but what's one takeaway that you're going to get from this session how to tell the story so take just a minute and share that with your table and then we'll finish up and we'll close with prayer in just a moment. So. I hope none of you are going to be terribly offended if we allow you to go a little bit early to lunch. But we're going to we're going to finish this one up just a couple minutes early. 3 sessions in a row this is a lot for a pastor usually pastors if we have to preach 3 times in a day it's the same sermon so we're good so. Let's close with the word of prayer. Dares Heavenly Father thank you so much for doing whatever it took to reach us the fact that you sent your son from the very throne room of heaven to the darkness of a dingy stable because you wanted a relationship with us thank you for doing that and God you give us wisdom give us strength. To find out how we can do the same for our children. In your name.
