|The Bible teaches us to teach our children about God.|
Along with receiving countless blessing from God, we must give Him something back--obedience. It's important that, in any relationship, there be some give and take. It's no different in this case. God loves to be our Daddy, providing us all that we need. All we need to do is obey Him.
How do we obey God?
We obey God by teaching our children about Him. We teach our children about the miracles God has done for His people. We let our children know that we, too, can receive those blessings. We must also take the time to know what is right from wrong and refrain from doing bad.
How do we know right from wrong?
In the past, the laws of God were contained in the Ark of the Covenant. We now have the Bible in our hands. We have copies of the laws of God. There is no excuse to disobey God, but the reality is that some don't choose to read the Bible. These individuals leave it to others to tell them what to do throughout life.
What are we teaching our children?
Are we leaving it to others to teach our children about God? Are we reading the Bible to them? Are we discussing with our children about all the provisions God has given us? The best way to teach children about God is to recount the miracles from the past and back it up with what the Bible says. In saying this, I must say it is imperative to teach about the consequences of disobedience, too.
