Deuteronomy 11: 18-19 (Good News Bible)
18 Remember these commands and cherish them. Tie them on your arms and wear them on your foreheads as a reminder. 19 Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you are resting and when you are working.
Do we show our faith and beliefs so openly? Are we afraid to speak about our faith or even quote the Bible in a public setting other than church? Is that because we are afraid of being mocked or are afraid of not being “politically correct”? As told here, we should cherish what we have been taught as the word of God.
And as Christians, we have a duty to model this for our children and teach them to do the same. This is not just referring to taking them to Sunday School and church. What are they getting from listening to your conversation? Are they hearing kind words and attitudes which will leave good impressions on them? Are you setting good examples by showing your love for the Lord and concern for others?
If we speak from the Scripture that God has put in our hearts during our daily lives and conversations, does this not get out into the world and then do its work?
Prayer: God, please help us teach the Word of God by not just passing along information, but by living as an example.
Thought for the Day: Children seldom misquote you: they repeat word for word what you SHOULD NOT have said!
