Happy Sunday everybody!
You know, for the longest time, I dreaded Sundays. That’s because for more than a decade now, Sunday has been the most grueling day of the week for us, being in the review center business. But from February to March, our Sundays are free. So I ensure that our family would be able to go to church. I know I speak on several people’s behalf that getting ready for church could be such a chore. But you know what, when I’m already in the church (especially at Victory!) listening to how much God loves me and you and how much Jesus has sacrificed for sinners like us, I feel good. Soooo good. Sobrang sarap ng feeling to be in His presence with my fellow believers. I like feeling shame and guilt for my transgression, because after that I would just be in awe of how God could love a sinner like me.
Of course, not everyday could be a Sunday, and there are Sundays when we simply cannot go to church. But that does not mean our connection with He-Who-Has-Sacrificed-His-Son-For-Our-Sake should be non-existent on other days. God wants us to communicate with Him as often as possible. How? We tell Him our woes and joys through prayer, and He admonishes, reassures, comforts, gives His promises, and reveals His plans through the Bible.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” – Psalm 119:105 (NIV)
As parents, it is our responsibility to inculcate into our children’s minds how much God loves them. It will do them a great deal of good if they know that there is someone who will never fail them (because as much as we try not to, we still fail our kids).
I knew the value of that, that’s why more than a month ago I bought Raviv his first “Bible”. It’s high time he learns that God is waaay more powerful than all fictional superheroes combined, and Raviv hears of God’s superpowers through the Bible stories in his Bible. Ang kyut-kyut n’ya pa because I trained him that when he goes to Kids’ Church, dala-dala n’ya ang Bible n’ya.
