When we imitate God and pursue the hearts especially of our loved ones, we find real joy.
When we imitate God and pursue His heart like He pursues ours, we find unending joy.
“For the kingdom of God is not a matter
of food and drink, but of righteousness,
peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit;
whoever serves Christ in this way is
pleasing to God and approved by others.
Let us then pursue what leads to peace
and to building up one another.” – Romans 14:17-19
Dad and mom, think of some examples of what you have done to pursue each other’s hearts. Share some of those examples with your kids. Remember, it’s usually little things: doing dishes, making a favorite meal, going on a date, giving a back rub, listening, etc.
