This week we started a new series in Crave. It’s entitled MOVE from XP3. It’s a series about serving others.
We had a great start to the series last night.
Really cool story. A student came up to me last night that will be going on a misison trip in a couple of weeks. She was so pumped. She shared with me that she had been waiting on this particular trip since she was in 5th grade… Why?
Because her dad leads this trip. She sees pictures, hears stories, and sees her dad serving others every year.
This stuck out to me because I think parents need to remember that children are watching you. If you want your students to develop into people that put others before themselves, then you must model it for them.
This daughter has been waiting to take a step with her dad for more than 5 years! Imagine the amount of anticipation and the things that God has been planning for her for that amount of time.
Parents, this week take some time to model service to others. Mow someone’s grass. Buy dinner for someone. Allow your student to see and participate as you show them what it means to serve others.
