What's On My Mind: SIDE BY SIDE
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. (Deuteronomy 6:7)
Our children mimic most of what they see in us words and deeds. They also form their images of God from the images they have of us as parents, If we're stern an unmerciful, they're likely to see God that way too. If we're distant and cold, so God will seem to them as well. It is one of our most important duties as parents to help our children see God clearly, especially the unconditional nature of His love.
I can imagine the family scrapbook of my relationship with God having s similar picture. I'm learning from Him how to live , how to love, and how to make it a permanent part of my being. He then teaches me how to teach others (Deut. 6:1-7)
May the Lord grant us an understanding of Him and the wisdom to pass it on.
We must teach our children clearly what is right and what is wrong; live before them an example Godly, righteous, pure, and strong
TO TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL, LET GOD TEACH
