A Word of Encouragement and a Word of Challenge

Parents, if you are rooted in God’s word you will have a leg-up on the rest of our culture.  Listen to this short clip of CPYU’s Walt Mueller talking about the importance of parenting rooted in scripture:

Now a challenge.  Are your kids taking the place of God in your hear?  Specifically, are your kid’s sports become an idol for you AND your family?  Listen again to Walt Mueller in this 1 minute audio clip:

Are sports taking away from your child’s spiritual development?  Is soccer taking the place of church or youth group?  Is youth group a less important activity than baseball?  Maybe i’m biased, but the real heart of my question is – are you prioritizing sports over faith?

Think about it.
