If you’ve ever been at a loss for how to spark dinner table conversation with your kids, I want to offer a little help. All this week I’m sharing provocative quotes that can spark conversations about the Christian faith and things that really matter. Here’s a quote worth discussing from Walter Trobisch: “God accepts us as we are, but when he accepts us, we must not remain as we are.” Sadly, there are many who believe that being a Christian is something that starts with a prayer to accept Christ, and then involves little or nothing else after. The reality is that when Jesus calls us to come and follow we are launching into a lifetime of transformation, where we allow the Gospel to change and transform us in every nook and cranny of life. Parents, we must take the time to show and tell our kids about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus as an outpouring of thanksgiving for the gift of salvation. Take time to search the Scriptures with your kids, learning what it means to live for Christ.
