As I was doing back exercises early this morning, looking forward to Bible time coming up next, I was overwhelmed with gratitude to my husband. He is the one who encouraged our family years ago to make personal Bible time part of our daily habits and family Bible time as well. I can hardly fathom the impact that has made on my life and the lives of my children.
Steve has been a disciplined man who will choose to go to bed at night so he can get up early enough in the morning to have time in the Word and exercise before starting work. His discipline allowed me to be disciplined with those areas and homeschooling. Helping moms with their scheduling, I have discovered that is not something to take for granted. Many husbands live undisciplined lives, which has negative results in their families.
Dads (and young men), may I encourage you to begin this important habit if you haven’t already. Daily time in God’s Word is critical. Steve didn’t grow up in a Christian home or see this modeled, yet he’s embraced this in our home, and that impact is being seen on the next generation.
Trusting in Jesus,
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD:
and he delighteth in his way. ”
