10 Surefire Ways to Make Your Kids Hate Family Devotions

Posted: March 11, 2014 in Uncategorized

If you’ve ever tried to do family devotions with young children, you understand how fun and frustrating this can be. With short attention spans, random questions, and an occasional tantrum, this experience can go from fun to frustrating quickly. Oh how frustrating it is when you had good intentions of teaching your children about Jesus and end up spanking them and sending them to their room within a few minutes! One of the things we have to remember is that kids are going to be kids. Sometimes they are going to talk about princesses and boogers and taking care of their baby doll when you’re trying to teach them about the cross and resurrection. And that is ok!  It might not seem like they are listening, but they are little sponges. Some days our family Bible time goes great and everyone is engaged and some days you feel like you’ve wasted your time. But when you consistently spend time with your kids feeding on God’s word, they look forward to it and begin to ask for it. And that is what we should want. We want our kids to be excited about God’s word and opening it with their family. We want for them to grow up thinking this is a normal part of our lives. And we want to avoid making our kids grow up hating family devotions. Here’s an article of some guaranteed ways to make your kids hate this special time each day: http://theresurgence.com/2014/03/03/10-surefire-ways-to-make-your-kids-hate-family-devotions.
