Here, I place before you the Lord’s saying in the Book of Deuteronomy:
“... and these words which I command you today shall be in your heart; 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.. You shall write them on the door posts of your house and on your gates ” (Deut 6:6-9).
To what extent do you carry out these commandments?
A - Are there framed verses that hang on the walls of your house so you, your wife and your children can memorize them.?
B - Do you teach your children what is written in the Bible, according to His saying: “Teach them diligently to your children,” or you depend on Sunday School and release yourself from the responsibility?! The children will then realize that their parents never talk to them about the word of God!!
C - Do you use the language of the Bible in your house according to the commandment: “Talk of them when you sit in your house”?
D - Do you read the Bible daily with the members of your family? Do you have a family gathering around the Bible?
E - Do you organize competitions for your children to memorize verses and train them in that?.. I am asking you before God asks you about that.
