You pack the diaper bag.
Don't forget your Bible...
(which you may never actually have a chance to crack open.)
You lug everything into the nursery
where you barely hear any of the message.
And you wonder why you bother.
Your children hear you sing praises to Jesus in their ears from their earliest memory.
And then one day.....the precious little 5-year-old sitting in your lap will sing those same songs right along with you.
And your heart will leap for joy.
Then, you will know that forming the habit of fellowship, worship, and learning God's word with your church family is so worth the temporary difficulty and inconvenience.
