one of my kids already went to camp. another one is there now. and another one is going next week.
why? why do we send our kids to camp?
the answer is obvious but still bears repeating, but the question that follows may surprise you.
the answer: so that they can get in nature, get a change of scenery, get away from the distractions of media and get alone with the creator of the universe. this allows them to remember who he is and how much he loves them. that’s why i send my kids to camp. the side benefits: relationships made, experiences logged, friendships solidified.
the question… why don’t we send ourselves to camp?
why dont we get in nature? get a change of scenery? get away from the distractions of media and get alone with the creator of the universe. allow ourselves to remember who He is and how much he loves us.
it’s time we sent ourselves to camp. this doesn’t have to be literal camp, it can be your version of these things… but do it. get away with God… take a “trek” “Journey” “mission impossible” … whatever you want to theme it as… let’s take a lesson from our kids, and get up close and personal with god.
