Here’s what I think about families today: We’re good at sharing information with our kids, but terrible at helping them see Jesus. We pass along facts with the hope that they’ll inspire passion. But this never happens, nor was it ever intended to.
Most followers of Jesus are fully aware that our call is to make disciples. After all, this was Jesus’ final instruction he gave to his followers. Although we know this, and agree this would be a good thing to do, most don’t do it. I think the problem is that they don’t know how, or don’t feel qualified.
