Leading Your Family Through Devotions 6.13.13

My name is Scott David. I am a Christian husband and father of four children that range in age from 1-1/2 to 14. I have been leading nightly family devotions for about eight years. Sometimes it’s just a verse from the Bible. Sometimes it’s an hour and a half lesson where we end up laying down in mud puddles outside. Sometimes it’s reading a chapter from John. Sometimes it questions from the Westminster Shorter Catechism. I don’t always finish what I start. I don’t always explain well, but one thing I do; I lead my family by nightly Bible lessons. Sometimes we cry, sometimes we laugh, many times we think hard, and other times I swear I hear crickets chirping from my children’s ears. But it brings me such comfort to know that God uses means of grace to save and sanctify me and my family. I can only teach the Word, God gives the increase.

I am starting this blog to help Dad’s lead their families through nightly devotions from the Bible. They are intended to be read and used as springboards to engage your family through the Word of God. You may not be leading your family to God right now, but make no mistake, whether you lead well, or whether you lead poorly; you are always leading, for God has ordained his creation that way.

It begins with a desire to do what God has called every man to do, a resolve to do it, and a purposed time to gather your family around you so that you might declare, “Thus saith the Lord!”

Why not begin tonight? Begin by telling your family that from now on, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
