For just one day of intimacy with you is like a thousand days of joy rolled into one! I’d rather stand at the threshold in front of the Gate Beautiful, ready to go in and worship my God, than to live my life without you in the most beautiful palace of the wicked.
Psalm 84:10 (TPT)
1 Samuel 1
Before we can teach our children to love God’s House we need to prioritise the House.
The hard times in life is when we come to the House.
Church is the Bride. What Bride would not show up to her Wedding Ceremony?
Church is the body.
Church is the fellowship and community of believers.
1 Corinthians 12-14. They are chapters about the Church.
We use our gifts through love, we love the body.
Hannah brought her child to the House.
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.”
Don’t let your children be an excuse. Let them come.
Hannah was a role model for how to love the House.
Your kids are watching what you do in church and how you respond.
Hannah brought an offering. Hannah worshipped.
Hannah released her child to serve in the House.
Pray, worship, read the Bible, get involved for themselves.
Invest in your child’s gifts.
Honour those in authority and receive instruction.
Serve with joy. I get to do this.
Reach out to others.
