Here's last weekend’s sermon in 10 Tweets in our “To Raise a Family" series.
1/ “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them…” is not about a monologue.
2/ It’s not a call to drill; it’s a call to dialogue.
3/ The commandments are about more than morality; they’re about mission.
4/ The commandments are about shining a light to the nations (Deut. 4:5-9)
5/ Many of the commandments are missional—about loving the refugee and the hurting.
6/ The Israelite households that took the commandments seriously lived a missional lifestyle.
7/ We ARE missionaries. We ARE God’s ambassadors, if we are his children.
8/ If your son asks why, tell him your story. It’s a story that begins with a mission to bless the world.
9/ Talking about the mission works best when you’re walking in the mission together.
10/ Missional living impacts kids most when there is reflection on the missional activity. Reflect and pray, asking, “What’s next?”
