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 (Deuteronomy 6:7).
Take time to consider every word in this
verse. “You” – a personal responsibility.
“Shall” – command. “Teach” – involves deliberate
instruction. “Them” – the words and commands
of God (v. 6). “Diligently”– with earnest,
constant, determined effort. “To”– targeted aim.
“Your” – belonging to you; your responsibility.
“Children” – heritage from the Lord needing
training and directing back to Him.
While bringing your children up in the way
they should go (Proverbs 22:6) is certainly a
challenge, they are “a reward” granted unto
us by our Heavenly Father (Psalm 127:3).
Set God’s Word in the center of your home.
Read it! Teach it! Live it! Love it!
