Here's the sermon in 10 Tweets in our "To Raise A Family" series.
1/ When passing on a spiritual legacy, the relationship is everything ONLY if the relationship with Christ is everything to the parent.
2/ If teenagers don’t see that a parent’s relationship with Christ is central to their lives, the stickiness factor is greatly diminished.
3/ “And these words that I command you today shall be on you HEART. You shall teach… and shall TALK of them..”
4/ You can’t just take it to heart, you have to talk about it.
5/ “I was trying to be like you. I admire you so much. But I didn’t know you were like you are because of your relationship with Jesus.”
6/ Good people, religious people with no personal faith, no relationship with Christ, teach Sunday school all the time. Kids know that.
7/ You have to connect the dots from what they see in your life to what is going on in your heart.
8/ Personalize Scripture.
9/ Share the story behind your decisions.
10/ Talk about how you steward your talent, your time, and your treasure.
