Begin with the End in Mind

     Knowing that someday we will die, we should work back from our death!  This gives perspective to each new day.  Death should not be a morbid thought, but rather a motivating factor.

     The following questions are ones we may want to ask as we take stock of our daily lives with our children.

  1. Did I show tangible love to my children today by listening to them and giving them my focused attention?
  2. Did I read from God's Word today and encourage them in their faith?
  3. Was I available for them in the teachable moments?
  4. Did I encourage them to hear from God, knowing that I may not always be able to do that for them?
  5. Did I encourage them to use their gifts and talents for the Glory of God?
  6. Did I smile at them today?
  7. Did I hug them today?
  8. Have I asked them today to forgive me for my wrong doings?
  9. Did I discipline them fairly?
  10. Finally, ask what you are doing today that you will be glad of 20 years from now!
