SERVICE BEGINS AT HOME
In Stretching the Soul (Revell), Ronald Wilson warns that a commitment to Christian service shouldn’t come at the price of neglecting our other responsibilities, namely our families. “If we don’t serve in little ways the people we love best, we may
question our motivation for serving those we don’t know as well. Service means putting ourselves below someone else, and it’s harder to do that with those we know best.”
Wilson writes: “We can’t serve our family if we’re not home. I don’t believe God calls us to frenzied living. If we’re scooting from one meeting or commitment to another, out nine nights a week, getting acquainted with our family as we pass through the house, then either we have not learned to say no to the demands, or we’re not responding to them in a healthy fashion.”
LABOR DAY REFLECTIONS
Labor Day brings to mind picnics, cookouts and family gatherings. Falling on the first
Monday in September, it marks the unofficial end of summer and the beginning of a new school year. But the holiday was created in 1882 to honor the social and economic contributions of American workers.
In a strong economy, it’s easy to take for granted the ability to work and be pai d well.
But times have changed during the past few years, with many people still struggling with unemployment and underemployment.
During our holiday celebrations this year, let’s give thanks for the jobs we have, pray for those who aren’t as fortunate and offer words of encouragement or help to someone who needs it.
Several sociological factors are affecting grandparents’ role. Because families are spread out geographically, “long-distance grandparenting” is now common. On the other end of the spectrum, many grandparents are actually raising their grandchildren.
Despite modern-day challenges and changes, grandparents are more important than ever for providing kids with a sense of history and heritage.
Whether through social media and Skype or special outings and storytelling, the older generation has a variety of avenues for connecting with grandkids. In the process, grandparents can share their Christian faith. “One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.” -- Psalm 145:4 --
