Above is a video from Mark Driscoll, the pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle. In it, he gives godly counsel to parents. He notes that “quantity time” is important if we ever desire “quality time” with our families. Our children and our spouses can’t just be scheduled into our calendars–as if we could guarantee that great opportunities for heart-to-heart conversation will happen between the hours of 7 and 8 pm every weeknight. We need to spend large amounts of time with our families, realizing that the most opportune times for discipleship are almost never blocked out before-hand.
