I always need to be encouraged by others in leading my family, and want to encourage others in leading their families. One good way to lead your family is through family worship.
James Grant has a great, short post at the Gospel Coalition to encourage us to begin this important discipline, because beginning is the hardest part (next to continuing, that is!). He gives three brief instructions for family worship. His thoughts are geared more to families with younger children, so for point two you can insert, read the Bible, as a starter.
- Plan to have family worship after an evening meal
- Read through a good book
- Say the Lord’s prayer after reading the book
I encourage you to read the whole post and begin right where you are, slowly, building up from one day a week to a consistent daily practice. Read the whole post for further encouragement.
