No One Responded to the Invitation

Posted: January 26, 2010 in Family

Last night I preached to my three kids.  It was on Matthew 7:12 (the Golden Rule).  I waxed eloquently about Jesus’ expectation that we treat others like we want to be treated.  I brought it down to real life application between how siblings should treat each other.  I attempted persuasion, reason, and emotive appeal.

When I finished, Kelly began to hum “Just as I Am“…while I extended an invitation to my children to come forward in tears of repentance

…they just sat there.

Please pray for the hearts of stone that belong to my children that they will be convicted for the sake and sanity of their parents…oh, and Jesus too! 🙂

    The same thing happened to me when I taled of the Biblical ramifications of room cleanliness. I read from Leviticus. Then, I read all of the begats from the book of Matthew and tried to tell them that all of these people in Jesus’ family all prescribed to the Jewish tenets of Holy Cleanliness.

    None were impressed…
