Parents, don’t lose your focus amidst life’s distractions!
Football practice, homework, and social events are not of themselves bad things. But if they become your focal points, you’ll undoubtedly direct your attention (and your son’s attention) to whatever pursuit has priority at the moment. But you can fight losing focus by being intentional about taking time to share with your son the way God used teenagers in the Bible to accomplish His purposes.
This will inspire him to look forward to however God might work through his young life to influence his generation as well. Teaching your son about Bible heroes will inspire him to live like them. Will you run the race with heroic faith? Your example will earn you the privilege of asking your son to grasp the baton you are handing him so that he can continue this great relay race of Christian heroes through the ages.
