I hope you can take the time to listen to the audio segment below. As you do, keep in mind that this is my good friend Noah Anderson. Noah just turned four years old. Every now and then you will hear his twin brother Benjamin, encouraging him to continue. Most of all, I want you to remember that this kind of four-year-old excitement about accounts from God’s Word does not happen by accident. Noah’s parents pray every day for his future faithfulness. Every night before Noah and Benjamin go to bed, their family spends a few minutes in the word of God and Noah and Benjamin take turns in prayer before the lights go out…EVERY night. I see them at very varied hours at the church building while their mom is preparing meals for distribution in our Hot Meals program, decorating for our ladies day, or while their dad is getting ready to take the church van out for the Wednesday night run. I see them often eating there, because the activities of the Sunday just don’t give them time to go home through the day. Their mom is a nurse, but she has chosen to and is blessed to be able to put that career on indefinite hold while her boys are growing up. I love to listen to Noah and Benjamin tell this story and others from the Word. In fact, we have lots of little people at the West Huntsville congregation who get excited about the Word of God. But none of this Bible knowledge and blossoming faith is accidentally acquired. It is a product of diligent, Deuteronomy six style parenting. Ultimately, it still depends on our homes and which we choose: the garden or the snake. Now listen!
