Our goal as Christian parents is to raise up men and women who love the Lord. But that’s NOT enough. I want my kids and grandkids to be followers of Christ who are looking to tell others about him. Unfortunately, our family has struggled in this area. We haven’t been intentional about telling people that Jesus was born, lived perfectly, was crucified, rose again, that He loves us, and we need Him to take away our sin. Here’s a suggestion. Strategize as a family. Ask, “Who do we know that needs Jesus?” Or, “What short-term mission trip could use our help?” Need help? MissionNews.org is a great resource to find out about outreach opportunities. Remember—sharing our faith isn’t optional.
