The Question we Ask After Church to our Kids

Saw this on Alex Absolam’s blog the other day.

It’s all about what you learned
What’s the first question we ask our kids after church?  ”What did you learn today?”  It’s a telling question if you think about it for a moment.  It infers that what is most important at church is what we learn (information).  Of course students will learn more in a setting designed just for them and therefore having them in adult church can not be too helpful.   But what if we changed the question?  Aren’t there better questions to ask after church?  What if we started to ask our kids, “Did you honor Jesus with your heart today?”, or “Did you connect with someone today that  helped you follow Jesus?”, or “Did you worship with all of your heart, or did you hold back?”
