Deuteronomy 6:7-9 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. 9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
God's command to us as parents is that we ourselves are to know God and to know without a doubt that the Lord our God is the only God and besides Him there is no other.
In having knowledge of God in our hearts and who He is, God expects us to diligently teach this to our children. We are to do this in action and with words. God says we "shall" do it!
God should be a part of our everyday conversation in our homes with our children. We are to remind them of who He is and what He has done and continues to do for us as a family.
Our children are gifts from God and we must give them back to Him by training them up as He commands us in the way that they should go.
Psalm 127:3- Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
God sends forth a warning to those parents who do not impress upon the hearts of their children his truth.
Parents, what are you teaching your children? Is God's truth that is found in His bible a part of your teaching? Our children need to be taught and trained in the things of God.
What is your aim in your child's life? Is it to know more about how to get all the stuff that the world offers so they can impress others or, is it for them to know more about God's love for them and what He is able to accomplish in and through them by their obedience to His word and not by compromise with this evil world.
We live in a world where children are allowed to make decisions that were once made by adults. Being a child today is met by every pressure imaginable, but I believe that regardless of what the world may throw at them, as Godly parents, we are still able, in the midst of the world's pressures, to help steer our children in the direction God would have them to go with love.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for the bible declares in Psalm 127:5a- blessed is the man whose quiver is full of children.
