Sweet Summer Time! School is out, children are under foot, and moms question, how do I keep these kids busy during the summer? May I suggest that its a prime time to incorporate a bible study? Not just for yourself, but for them too. As they see your example of spending time with God in His word they will learn the importance of it for themselves. There are so many studies out there for children and teens, or adapt what you are learning for an organized discussion time. As a parent there is no higher calling than to teach them of God and His love for them. The memories you will make while learning about God will have lasting impact as His word never returns void. So, open His word this summer with your children.
If you don't have a child at home then be sure to find a study for yourself that delves deep into the scriptures. We can become pacified with just a small soundbite from the Word, but if we are going to grow (and He calls us to do just that) then we need to be digging in deep. He's worth it, don't you think?
My prayer is that we won't take the summer off from being in His word. He doesn't ever take time away from being available to us. His word is refreshing to the soul and food for our spirit. Dig in!
God bless, and have a wonderful summer!
