An Encouraging Word

“Training our children to pay attention is a tough job. Without focus on what people are saying, we won’t hear or learn. As parents, we can model paying attention by listening to God’s Word and obeying it. In Zechariah 1:1-6, we see the Lord calling to Israel to pay attention to Him and to obey Him. God speaks to us today through His Word and through people. “God is speaking – are we paying attention? Of course, many people and many organizations are trying to get our attention: political candidates seeking our votes, businesses urging us to use their products or services, spokespersons for a variety of religious and philosophical viewpoints. We must be able, at times, to block out these voices so that we can hear God’s Word and respond to His bidding. Let us thank God for the power to determine to what or to whom we should give our attention. Let us pray that we may learn to ‘fine-tune’ our attention so that God’s message can come through clearly.” As we learn to listen to God through His Word, we can better train our children to recognize truth from God.”
