Your Shadow - Your Influence

Acts 5:15-16.      Peter's shadow had influence.  His shadow inspired, encouraged, and heals.
What kind of shadow do you cast?  What kind of influence do you have?
 Are you a breath of fresh air or full of gloom. The power of God and being a blessing is attractive!!!
Key: Peters life was in Christ!!!!  His relationship- God's power - You take the atmosphere of Christ with you!!!!  Be filled with the love of God.

How to Survive Parenthood

1Sam. 25:2-3 Abigail and Nabal. (Beauty and the Beast).  How did they ever get together? It was a pre-arranged marriage.  Nabal was a rich man. Abigail would be fixed for life.
They thought all that mattered was money.  The world worships money. Money is the root of all evil.
We want our children to marry a Christian.  Marry only in the Lord. Not easy to pass Christianity to our children.
  Prov. 22:6 Train up your child In the Lord.  What you need to know is...
1. It's not about you
2. Your not alone
3. It's a process. One step at a time. We need to aim at sowing love. Teaching our children they are unique. And having the confidence in who they are. God has a purpose for their lives. Learning to be independent but dependent on God.
Christian heritage is no guarantee.
