When children are put first, it becomes not only unhealthy but devastating. If the aim of life fails short of what is pleasing to God most of all (to glorify him and worship him above all things) we are building our lives on shifting sands.

What we discussed:
1.How does your day begin? Are you willing to start your day with Christ?
2.If the kids’ schedules start to overshadow the things that would lead to spiritual health for your family, that is a good indicator that you’re drifting from Christ’s priorities for our lives.

Matthew 6:33, Psalm 127:3, Matthew 7:24-27, Genesis 37-50, Luke 15:11-32,
