Making disciples mostly means spending time and investing. And in today’s society it is so easy to take for granted the family. When I was in youth ministry in the 1980’s one of our kids in the group had a band named Loud Silence. That name always cracked me up because they were anything but silent. In looking at the Bible and the life of Christ, the loudest silence in all of Scripture is the 30 years that Jesus stayed in Nazareth with His family.
30 years, 90% of the life of our Savior and Lord was with family. No miracles that we know of, no big things, just hard work being a carpenter. To me this is the loudest silence in all of scripture. Jesus was about the family.
