Let me start with a little doggerel, some bad poetry, to introduce the topic for the third interview in this series.
“On the table, side-by-side,
The Holy Bible and the TV Guide.
One is well-worn, but cherished with pride
Not the Bible, but the TV Guide.
One is used daily to help folk decide,
No, it isn’t the Bible, it’s the TV Guide.
As pages are turned, what shall they see?
Oh, what does it matter, turn on the TV.
The Word of God is seldom read,
Maybe a verse ere they fall into bed
Exhausted and sleepy and tired as can be
Not from reading the Bible but from watching TV.”
That’s just part of a little ditty that Jim Elliff shared in this interview on Family Life Today. This discussion addresses the issue of why taking our children to church is not enough. Whether it is daily reading from Scripture, readings from a Christian allegory, or stories at bedtime, we parents must be intentional about the instruction that we give to our children.
As Dennis Rainey states in this broadcast,
Well, you know, the thing I like about what Jim is doing here, Bob, is he is giving us not merely a burden to present the Gospel but also some very practical ways and tools to be able to do that.
Read more about it or listen to these practical ways and tools to share the gospel with your family.
