Deuteronomy 6:6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.

As parents, we teach our children so many things including: the alphabet, numbers, shapes, reading, and even the latest dances. Along with that, and more importantly, we should teach our children God’s Word.

The Word of God is the most important thing to a believer. It keeps us in faith, it empowers us, it keeps us in peace, it destroys the assignment of Satan, and so much more. If it does all of these great things, why would we keep it from our children or wait until they become “older” to teach it to them?

When they’re babies, start reading a verse a day to them. Have them read a verse or more as they learn how to read. Have them memorize the location of certain scriptures. Have them contextually explain a passage of scripture. All of this will benefit them as they become young adults.

Let’s do a service to our children and obey the commandment of God and teach them the Word of God.
