Modern conveniences like cell phones, computers, and tablets are supposed to give us more leisure time, right? But, in reality, technology simply raises everyone’s expectations for speed and availability. What about family time—at least one night a week that we’re collecting cell phones and tablets and taking time to spend with our families? Let me suggest that we all set a night and time to play board games or Uno or something else that will force us to talk and have fun. If we don’t schedule it, it’s just hit or miss. Agree on a game, share memories, talk about all kinds of things—including your favorite Bible story and why. Make sure, though, that food is a part of it. Dads, you be in charge. You’ll be glad you did.
