The importance of attending worship

Parents: Be Consistent About Attendance!

All godly parents are concerned about bringing up their children to be good, God-fearing people.  Of course, we are commanded to do so (Ephesians 6:4).  Consistency is an essential key in bringing up faithful children.  An obvious area where this consistency needs to be seen is in the matter of attendance. 

If you allow your kids to miss the worship services in order to be at a ball game, you are teaching them that the ball game is more important than the Lord.  If you let them skip the assemblies for school functions, band trips, dramas or plays, or to go camping, fishing or hunting, in all at these ways you are demonstrating that there are things that are more important than God.  If you fail to worship when you are traveling or on vacation, you are showing them that serving God is something you do only when it is convenient.  If you let them take part-time jobs that interfere with their attendance, you are giving them a clear sign that work and career considerations are higher in priority than spiritual things.

Many parents who are violating the principles stated above will scoff at these warnings.  Yet the personal experiences of many people, as well as the plain teachings of God's Word indicate that this is the truth.

Joshua had it right when he said, "as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" (Josh. 24:15).  There would be no compromise in his family.  He would LEAD them in a consistent, faithful path.  Let's imitate his example of consistency!
