July is for Freedom, Family, and Fun


It’s Summer!  The kids are home from school.   Vacations are planned.  Work often lets up a bit in July, and it’s time for the three “Fs”:  Freedom, Fun, and Family. 

July is for Freedom.  If my mission trips to South America have done nothing else, it has made me aware of how blessed we are in our country.  For one thing, almost all of us have HOT SHOWERS! The Freedom we celebrate on July 4th is truly a blessing that we dare not take for granted.  We have been reminded just recently of the high price that is paid for this cherished possession.  You have the Freedom to worship, to study God’s Word, to practice your faith and to introduce your faith to others. This month let us ask ourselves how we might use our freedom to the glory of God.

July is for Family.  School is out; vacations are planned; special family times are abundant in this warm month.  Family is a blessing, but so many do not have this treasured possession.  Their families may be in conflict, broken, or separated for various reasons.  Some may not possess the means with which to celebrate. This month, let us ask ourselves how we might use our special Family times to the glory of God.

July is for Fun.  Playing a baseball game, going swimming, having a picnic, taking a hike, or just hanging out; the everyday fun stuff that fills summer makes this month special.  Sometimes, these relaxed, casual times are our most prized possessions of summer.  Even these can be times a blessing as you remember God’s touch on your life. This month, let us ask ourselves how we might use our everyday Fun times to the glory of God.

Each of these July valued possessions can be used to make disciples and to disciple others.  Your Christian influence could make the difference in the life of another person.  Use this month of July to celebrate Freedom, Family, and Fun and while you’re at it, initiate a conversation about spiritual things, introduce someone to Jesus; invite someone to church and Sunday School.  How might July be used to the glory of God?
