Families are Porch Lights

“God left our families in communities to serve as porch lights, if you will, for the lost people around us.  We are to be the steady glow that helps them find their way out of darkness.  When families are committed to being this light, the are inclined to live more intimately with Christ.  They pray more, they study their Bible more, they care for one another more, they reach out to their neighbours more.  Somewhere in all the talk about raising kids, we moved away from this as a priority in our parenting.”
