There is a pernicious myth in our culture which has pervaded the Christian church. It is the myth of quality time. I heard a father say, “Well, I don’t spend that much time with my kids, but the time I do spend is quality time”. Not so. In fact, without a large quantity of time, there is no quality time! Our families are our most important investment. Are you taking a significant quantity of time to get to know your children? The greatest single contribution you can make in the lives of your children, apart from leading them to Jesus Christ, is to get to know them. You can’t meet the emotional needs of a child you do not know. You can’t meet the spiritual needs of a child you do not know. You can’t train and equip a child you do not know. And you do not get to really know a child without spending a significant quantity of time with him or her.
