Top Priority As A Parent

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon 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.
Deuteronomy 6:6–7

Your top-priority job as a parent, then, is to be an evangelist in your home. You need to teach your children the law of God; teach them the gospel of divine grace; show them their need for a Savior; and point them to Jesus Christ as the only One who can save them.  ~ John MacArthur

King David knew the importance of God’s Word for his personal life. He said, “I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119:11). But he was also committed to passing on a love and reverence for God’s Word to the next generation. According to his son Solomon, David said to him: “My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body” (Proverbs 4:20–22).

Do you share God’s Word with your children? If they are still in the home, do you take them to church and Bible class? Do you ever sit down and read aloud from a Bible story book or a Bible passage? One of the greatest privileges and responsibilities of parenting is to pass on our faith to the next generation.

Father in heaven, thank You for the gift of children. I pray that you would help me to share with them a love for Your Word that will guide their steps all of their days. Amen.
