Today’s sermon was on being a family, especially what it means being a family of God. I won’t go into the details here, just what impressed my heart from the sermon.
The key verses that impressed my heart was
Deuteronomy 6: 1-2 and 7.
6 These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.
7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
It starts with Me (verse 2). My relationship with God. My walk with God must be right before I can teach my children. It once again reminded me to persevere in my daily walk with Him. When I prioritise God to be first in my daily life, it will then overflow to my children’s lives and from my children’s lives overflow into another generation- their children after them.
Such a privilege and such a huge responsibility to leave a legacy to generations to come! It starts from me. Why? Because I can’t change anyone else except my own attitude. And I am willing.
After the sobering sermon, we had an enjoyable time of bonding with our other family members of God. We had a very fit and fabulous instructor from the English Congregation who doesn’t look the least like a senior citizen! Talk about being inspired! We did our workout with gusto!
The below was our first activity: The aim is to get the Ping Pong ball stuck on the Peanut Butter bread!
Papa relieved J for a while to let him have a go at aiming the ball into the cup.
The goal is to jump and jiggle out all those ping pong balls from the tissue box!
This is pretty fashionable I think! Aim to swing those teabags onto the cap!
Poor Potato Chip has to slide down from forehead and reach the ultimate destination for Papa’s consumption!
J actually managed to ‘kiap’ (pick up) marbles (3 times) with a pair of chopsticks!
It was a FUN FUN FUN FAMILY TiME! Thankful for a fruitful Sunday!
