Let's Go To Church

“Dad,” said a small child getting ready for Sunday school, “I want to be just like you. When will I be old enough not to have to go to church?”

The father blushed with embarrassment and said, “Come on son, let’s go to church together.”

Most parents are anxious that their children go to church. Unfortunately, many parents do not realize how important it is for them to set the proper example for their children. Going to church is one of the most important examples parents can set for their children. It demonstrates the value and priority they place on worshiping together.

Being a Christian without going to church is like a soldier going into battle without an army or a violinist preparing for a concert without any accompaniment. A family trying to live life without worshiping together is like a ship with no rudder.

The Apostle Paul wisely said, “Let us not neglect our church meetings, as some people do, but encourage and warn each other, especially now that the day of His coming back is drawing near.”

Prayer: Father, I admit that I need to be with others and worship and praise You. Help me to be faithful and join with others to honor You: in Your Name. Amen.

Scripture for Today: Hebrews 10:25
