Honor changes kids, but sometimes it's hard to communicate its importance to children. One way that you can teach honor is by modeling it as you extend hospitality to others. We live in a compartmentalized society. Many of the entertainment options today decrease interaction between people and leave them feeling lonely.
It's an honor to be invited over for dinner or for an evening of games and activities.Opening your home is an excellent way to extend grace and honor to others and it's good for your kids. Talk with your children about who you're going to invite and why. Plan the evening together and talk about how you'll treat your guests as special.
Afterwards, talk about how things went and emphasize the positive things that happened and how you all worked together to show honor to others.
1 Peter 4:9 gives an interesting command to believers. "Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling."
Use that verse before, during, and after to help your children understand the benefits of honoring others.
So, who can you invite over this week? Not only will you bless others, but also you'll be blessed yourself. And your kids are always watching and learning.
This was from "Biblical Parenting" today. I really enjoyed the article, thought I would share! Really great lesson to use maybe over the Thanksgiving & Christmas Holidays!!

Today The Flight held its first "family gathering". . . right on target, I say. What do I mean? Family Time. Time spent at church, listening, watching, playing, praying, talking, eating, crafting, teaching, and learning. An investment that will make a difference in your child's eternity.
The kids enjoyed the food . . .
Even Mr. Andy!. . .
Thank you Lord for Mrs. Marca, Miss Bobbi, and Miss De. All of you can know that these ladies have such a heart for your child. They pray for them. They love them. They take time out each week to study and prepare for them.
After lunch & games, each family was able to make a "keepsake table cloth". It can be added to by more family members each and every year. It can be a tradition. It will someday be a treasure that could be passed down.
Look at these precious hands. . .
Thank you parents who took time out of your busy schedules to support your child's "Life Group". It is time that you have invested in their eternity. That is simply great.
Being a Life Group Leader in the nursery provides you with an opportunity to love and nurture babies, but to also reach out to parents who need love and support as they are doing their best to raise children in a Godly home. We do have rooms that need leaders. Come be a part. You will be so glad you did.
