Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:6-9 (NLT)
You have been taught the holy Scriptures from childhood, and they have given you the wisdom to receive the salvation that comes by trusting in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15 (NLT)
These scriptures are important reminders that children are not too little to learn God’s Word. Children are most impressionable in the early childhood years- ages zero to eight. It is very easy to focus on their social, emotional, intellectual, or physical development while neglecting their spiritual development. We have an obligation to impress God’s Word on them. Here are a few ways I impress God’s Word on my little ones:
- I allow God’s Word to guide my mothering practices
- Teach them the Word and help them memorize scriptures
- Play the Bible and worship music in the home
How are you impressing God’s Word on your children? Please share!
Would you like to become a member of God’s family? Please say the prayer below and let me know about it here.
Say this: Heavenly Father,
I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I believe you exist and you sent Jesus to die for me. I receive your love and forgiveness. Reveal yourself to me. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Amen
Welcome to God’s family!
