Teach your kids.

Memorize his laws and tell them to your children over and over again. Talk about them all the time, whether you're at home or walking along the road or going to bed at night, or getting up in the morning. Deuteronomy 6:6-7

As parents it's our job to teach our kids God's Word. And not just the "Obey your parents" and "Honor thy Mother and thy Father" :)

So what happens when a parent teaches their kids God's Word?

They are equipped to minister to others.

Don't hold your kids back by keeping God's Word to yourself. Share, talk about it, teach your kids the way they should live. Show them. Read it together. Don't leave it up to your school and Sunday school to teach your children God's Word. Sing songs to them that tell of God's greatness and goodness. It's never too early to lay the foundations to lead them to Salvation.

Isn't this kid cute???

My guess is that her Mummy has been teaching her God's Word, and singing to her songs of praise and developing a heart of worship.

Dear God,
I have been so slack in teaching my kids your Word. Please help me talk about You to my kids, and show me ways I can minister to my children and lead them to you. Thankyou for the gift of my children, and I pray for help as teaching them about you and talking about You becomes a priority.
Thankyou Lord, Amen.

Hey Skipper, thanks for 'following' and commenting on my blog! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

My wife has the CD copy of The Four Loves read by Lewis himself - one of the few audio recordings of his voice available for purchase. I haven't listened to it yet, but my wife really enjoyed it.

God bless and happy blogging!
