Since I haven't gotten any questions, I'll ask another of my own: How do you deal with materialism in your children? It seems like MKs should do really well in this area, but I don't know. Mine are too little to tell. I have been questioning since this last trip to America. A certain child of ours keeps talking about wanting to live in America some day: "So that I have this and have that, and buy this and...." I've seen this in the children of immigrants to America, too; they didn't grow up with the materialism, so it just overwhelms them and eats them up with they do come across it.
This is kind of moving beyond the Tuesday Topic, and into devotional, but I loved this recent post by Ann Voskamp. These quotes...!
American dreams are about having much and God dreams are about giving much.
American dreams are about this need to become a someone. God dreams are about becoming bread for anyone in need because they love SomeOne.(If you have a “Tuesday Topic” question, please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
