A conversation today on the way to church:
Laurel: Why are we going to church?
Me: Because we like to. We like to pray to God with others. [Our church prays together nearly the entire midweek service.]
Bethel: I don’t like to pray to God.
Me: That’s because you don’t know Him yet.
This is a fascinating conversation to me, because I’ve always been under the assumption that children who grow up in Christian homes pretty much love God, church, and the Bible from the time they’re born. It’s what they’re used to, right?
Maybe in other families, but in our family, our children like church, sure, but it seems to be more because their friends are there than they really enjoy spiritual things. And more often than not, if you ask them if they love God, they’ll tell you no. Interesting. Maybe that’s because they’re not saved yet.
