Within moments of turning on the TV, commercials blare societal values. Newspaper and magazine titles reflect a longing for more. Materialism permeates our everyday life. It's what you own, what you do, and who you know that defines you. How can we live godly lives in such an ungodly world? And more importantly, how can we raise godly children?
Most of us have heard that "values are caught, not taught." We need to walk the truth before our children, not simply share it with them. As parents, we want to do all we can to shape these impressionable lives God has given us. Without knowing God's truth, children can grow up to look like the world around them.
