I think back upon my own.
What I could have and should have done differently.
But then again, through God’s mercy and grace, I have two daughters who are precious in His sight and each serving Christ.
A friend of mine, Jean Thomason, also known as Miss PattyCake. (Google it and be amazed.)
In creative meetings, I have heard Jean, more than once, quote the following scripture from Psalm 8:2.
“You have taught the little children to praise you perfectly. May their example shame and silence your enemies!”
Isn’t that a beautiful verse?
You have taught the little children to praise you perfectly.
How does God teach the children to offer up perfect praise?
The mom and the dad.
Don’t be afraid to allow you children to see you praise a Holy God.
That is how they will learn.
By watching you.
In your prayers, in your songs, in a worship setting with your hands held up, in honor to God.
Why is this so important?
If they learn to offer up perfect praise, which by the way, is not impacted by perfect tone nor pitch, then they will in turn as the scripture goes on to say, be an example to others.
In fact, their example will stop the enemy.
What enemy can defeat someone whose life is founded in perfect praise toward their God?!
No enemy can overcome that.
They need to see their dads lifting their voice.
They need to see their mothers lifting their voice.
Be bold in your example to your children.
It is from the mouths of babes that the Kingdom of God is established.
