To TURN the hearts of the fathers to the children, we will cover TIME.
How do children spell love? TIME.There is no substitute for spending time with our children.
"We can try to convince ourselves that everything else we do is important, but there are few greater priorites in life than investing time with our sons and daughters."
The time investment from a father to his chidlren may be the single greatest gift ever given. It is more valuable than anything material you can give and certainly more meaningful.
Every person has exactly the same amount of time. The real issue is not the availability of time, but the economy of time. How we use the time God has given us will determine our effectiveness as fathers.
For children to grow up into men and women of godly character and spiritual maturity, it takes time. We must model godly lives for our children to see.
**As a church, we have chidlren who come that may not have godly examples at home. Where are they going to get those godly examples unless we give them to them here? They must know that we love them and care about what happens to them. Programs like VBS, Camp Sonrise and Family Ministries provide opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime.
