Dear Men,

Can I be honest for a second?

You are really a big lynch pin in the transformation of your family. If you value Godly things, statically, your whole family will value them. If you value Christ-centered things, typically, your wife and children will as well.

If men are committed to the church, every other ministry grows in healthy ways as well. If you invest in the ministry of your local church, you can rest assure that you are investing in eternal things. The eternal rewards will be mind blowing.

I understand that we are all being pulled in every sort of direction in our life, but seriously, you’re going to blink, and this thing called life is going to be over. What is your legacy going to be? I mean it! Ask yourself that kind of question on a regular basis. It’s important.

There will come a day when we will have to give an account for how we lived this life, and if we don’t value the things of God now we’re going to wish we had. It’s not too late. Stop making excuses, and start laying plans to lead your family to the feet of Jesus! You’ll be so glad you did!
