Obstacles to Family Worship: 5. Minimalistic Attitude

The minimalistic attitude that many take at school or the workplace often invades their relationship with God, as well. The attitude is often “What is the least I can do and still be considered a Christian.”

When people begin to get this type of mindset, then Sunday Morning attendance a couple of times each month is all they are out to accomplish. For families who have drifted to this minimalistic attitude of Christianity, daily family worship seems far too extreme, something reserved for a family of missionaries in Pakistan, maybe.

Instead of thinking this way we must, as Peter commanded, “Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation” (1 Peter 2:2).

Only by steadily feeding on the Word do we grow into mature believers. Parents must practice this before their children. This daily practice will model for their children what it is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind” (Luke 10:27).

Christian parents should always be striving and pushing forward in Christianity. Parents must exert great effort to keep God first in their personal lives and in the life of their children.

When daily family worship is established in a home, children learn that Christianity is much more than something that they do on Sunday. They witness the importance of making God a priority every day. There is no place better for this lesson to be learned than in the home.

Children are patterning their lives after their parents. When they see mom and/or dad running the Christian race with all their might, it causes them to want to do the same.

Nothing is ever gained by having a minimalistic attitude, and so it is with doctrine and Christian education.

Obstacles to Family Worship: 4. Priorities

We always have time for what we believe is most important. Unfortunately, the daily worship of God is not at the top many families lists. Sadly, other far more insignificant matters seem to occupy our days.

Families often claim to have no time for family worship, however, it is truly not an issue of time, but an issue of importance. What we view as most important does get done each day. Families must learn to reprioritize their day with family worship time as a top priority.

Truly, the argument could be made, that it is the most important task that could be accomplished each day. That said, it should not be #10 on the list of things that must get done, but #1.

Once family worship time has been established in the mindset of everyone as a “top priority” to accomplish each day, then it begins happening. Families begin to place it at the top of their “to do” list and it gets done.

What is more important than worshiping God? What is more important than teaching your children about God? Nothing!
