BLAST OFF: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON SPIRITUAL HABITS
If you’re a grown-up and you’ve been following Jesus for a while, you’ve probably figured out a few ways to grow spiritually. The kids you’re parenting or leading, on the other hand, aren’t grown-ups, so they might need a little help from you to figure out how, exactly, to grow spiritually. So what should spiritual growth look like for a kid? We like to think about it in terms of four spiritual habits. To help a kid grow spiritually, teach them to spend time with God, spend time with others, use their gifts, and share their story.
When’s the last time you told your kid about your journey of faith? Have you ever told them what you thought about God when you were their age, or when you first heard about Jesus? Do you talk with them about who God is to you today? If it’s been a while, start that conversation with your kid this month. Tell them your story of faith for two reason: 1) Because it will help your kid’s faith grow. 2) Because it will help your faith grow too
If you’re looking for more help when it comes to leading your kids spiritually, check out this book by Natalie Frisk. It’s called Raising Disciples, and it’s a good one!
