The Slavery of Serving Worldliness

“Oh that my child be godly. Oh that my child give it all for the sake of Christ. Oh that my child live for Him. Oh that my child not be enslaved to the very things that so enslave me.

Do you realize, now listen to this, there’s a balance in everything, there is… but do you realize that if you would just take an agenda/write down a list of how much time you invest in your children in extra curricular activities (versus) how much time you invest in your children with regard to godliness.

We buy things, we fill them full of media, we put them in the world, and we carry them every place on the face of the earth all throughout the week that our lives are so busy and scattered that we can’t even sit a meal and what are we doing?! We’re making our children enslaved to the very master that enslaves us and ruins our lives instead of teaching our children only one thing is needed: devotion to Christ.”

– Paul Washer
