Good stuff from Odd Thomas.
“We are not doing our jobs.
We are not being obedient to God’s call.
We have assumed that the Great Commission is optional,
And as a result we have broken God’s law.
So how do we deal with this discipleship dilemma?
Well, it starts with confession:
A profession of our rebellious indiscretion,
An owning up to our sin of selfishness, repentance,
And remembering redemption.”
My Pastor of Family Ministries, Dave Jacobson, asked me for a list of resources and websites helpful for parenting to add to his list of resources for parents at our church. Here is what I came up with:
Big Truths for Young Hearts by Bruce Ware is essential
The Gospel Story Bible and The Jesus Storybook Bible are great
Heard good things about The Church History ABCs
Heard good things about The Big Picture Story Bible
I haven’t gotten a chance to look at The Action Bible by Mauss, but it looks cool
