Growing in 2009…Investing more in my kids

I’m not a bad dad.  I love my kids.  I like spending time with them, yet I often times exchange the important for the urgent.  When my day is done I often want my kids to entertain themselves instead of me taking moments to teach them what they need to know about life and faith just by spending time with them.

In 2009, I want to get on the right track with my kids.  If there is one thing I don’t want it is to make my kids resent the church because their dad spent more time investing in other people than in them.

So…I want to get on my hands and knees more, playing with them.  I want to carve out more special time with each of them to talk with them and make them feel like a central part of my life.  I want to lead them to Christ.

Does your life get in the way of making your kids a priority?
