Treasuring God in Our Traditions

Front Cover
Crossway, Sep 7, 2007 - Religion - 128 pages

God is the treasure of our lives. He is part of everything we do, think, act, and say-literally, he is a part of us. This precious heirloom of Christ himself must be passed on to future generations. But how?

Treasuring God in Our Traditions presents the importance of passing along Christ-centered traditions and a Bible-saturated legacy in Christ to future generations. NoŽl Piper helps her readers recognize how the "everyday" routines of life and the "especially" celebrations of holidays and dates can be practically passed down to future generations. When parents and grandparents seek to pass along the treasure of God to their children and grandchildren, they will develop and deepen their love for him.

When family traditions are rooted in the Bible, the next generations will see that the greatest treasure that anyone can have is the treasure of God.

great book w/ lots of practical ideas to get us started. thought provoking and convicting as it pushes one to consider what they are communicating to their children by their actions (or lack of actions). i would recommend this for any Christian family. Read full review
