10 Things Your Kids Should Catch You Doing

“Dad, I liked it better when you didn’t have an IPhone.” Heard these words from my oldest son several years ago. It was a wake up call and a reminder that everything I do as a parent is about teaching and proclaiming a message of what is valuable. And so much about faith and life is more CAUGHT than TAUGHT, so we must be ENGAGED. I loved this list that Carey Long shared with our church today.

10 Things Your Kids Should Catch You Doing as A Parent:

  1. Serving Others.
  2. Living w/Integrity and Humility.
  3. Chasing a Vision.
  4. Modeling a Godly Marriage.
  5. Respecting Authority.
  6. Admitting Mistakes and Asking for Forgiveness.
  7. Engaged in Worship and making Worship a priority.
  8. Studying your Bible.
  9. Practicing prayer.
  10. Depending on God.

What are your kids catching from your life?
