Here's my sermon from last weekend in 10 tweets.
1/ John Maxwell: "...if you desire to create a legacy, then you need to leave something in others."
2/ Leaving a spiritual legacy requires a rational AND relational element. Both are found in 2 Timothy 3:14-15.
3/ Your kids are one click away from sites like evilbible.com. Do you think a shallow, head-in-the-sand faith will cut it anymore?
4/ Parents: Face your own questions and doubts, partner with the church, ensure a good handoff.
5/ The first two weeks of college typically set the spiritual trajectory of a students spiritual life in college.
6/ You can communicate all the right Bible knowledge and content, but if you don't capture a kid's imagination...
7/ They have to want it or they'll waste it.
8/ Kids need quality connections with Christian adults for faith to stick. 5 adults to 1 kid ratio!
9/ Who is on your kid's team of Jesus-following adults that care about & relate to him or her?
10/ I had this growing up. Many of you had it. But you're conducting a dangerous experiment by not giving it to your kids.
