These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates. Det 6:6-9
Notes from my morning meditation 2014.
Here Moses is sharing with people of Israel the importance of studying God’s Word and teaching it to our children. We are to mediate on them both day and night. The rules and laws found there should be in our hearts and we should pass on our love and obedience to God and his Word to our children and grandchildren….they are our future. Can you imagine a generation of godless children and what havoc would be brought on?
Food for thought: Are you studying God’s Word…feeding on it…meditating on it daily or as much as you can? Are you instructing your children in God’s Word and cultivating a love and respect for it in them? Train up a child in the way they should go and they will not depart from it.
May God bless each of you richly today.
