Growing Up

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 –These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

Do you remember as a child the songs you were sung by your parents, the bedtime stories you were told, or the little sayings your parents used to say as you grew up? I remember my mom singing a very special song to me and rocking me to sleep and I remember her as an adult saying uff-dah! It still makes me smile. But I also remember her saying very wise words to me that I later grew to learn were actually words from the Bible!.  For example – “You need to check yourself because, pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before stumbling.” (Proverbs 16:18)

When I read today’s passage, I cannot help but ask — do you remember the teachings of Christ you were raised with? Maybe you were never raised with anything you can look back on.  Either way, we have a new day today.  Weave God’s Word into your children by allowing His Words to apply to everything they encounter.  God’s Word has so much richness in it for our kids.  When you see a bad influence in a friend, look to speak God’s word into your child — “Bad company corrupts good morals.” (1 Cor. 15:33) Or if they have a speech before a class or they have to talk to a coach, remind them–Do not fear going before those in authority because they Lord will help you in that moment with what to say. (Luke 12: 11-12.)

You can never go wrong with the Word of God! But before we can speak it to them, we need to know it. If you train your child up in the way they should go (With Christ), they will never depart from it! (Proverbs 22:6)

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
