Service with a smile

Romans 12: 1 (New King James)*
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.

Romans 12:1 (New International)*
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship.

If your child has chores, consider helping him with one. This isn't about doing it your way. This is about doing something nice to help them (while demonstrating an act of service and spending some quality time as well). Make a conscious effort to be available for conversation.

If your child does nto have a chore, consider training her, side-by-side.

Prayer Suggestion: Pray that your child will always be willing to talk to you. Ask God to help you be available.

*[Yes, I posted two versions of the same verse. Notice that acts of service can also be translated as acts of worship to God?]
