One day Joshua said this. Joshua 24:15. He just put his cards on the table and he said, “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” It’s my prayer that every single parent family, every blended family, and every nuclear family with 2.3 kids would make that Joshua 24 decision to serve the Lord. Because, if you think about it, husbands and wives, moms and dad’s, we’ve lost our position. We’ve slipped from where we should be and we’ve tumbled. And we’ve tumbled down the steps and it’s caused a lot of damage.
A lot of people are hurting. A lot of families are fractured. And it’s embarrassing. Yet, a lot families pop back up and they go, “Hey, everything’s cool. We’re okay.” But it’s not cool. And when it comes to parenting, the joke’s on you. As I said, when Lisa and I were making our way to the concession stand, limping and looking at our wounds, we said to ourselves, “Man, what happened?”
And Lisa goes, “Ed, how did you fall? Honey, you’ve got decent balance, what happened?” And we weren’t sure what happened. Did I trip? Did I lose my balance on some spilled soft drink? Was it because I had four beers earlier? I don’t know! (audience laughter) Nah, I don’t drink beer! I’m just joking.© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Ministry
