Children need the God of the Bible

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and to depart from evil is understanding.”

God did not give us our children to lead them into philosophical confusion. God gave us simple instructions in Deuteronomy 6 on how to raise and nurture our children to be Godly children.

If we teach our children that the Bible is the Word of God and that Jesus Christ is the Truth, the Way, and the Life, our children will have strong principles against which to weigh everything that they encounter and will evaluate the options more rightly, which will lead to better choices.

Our children need to be grounded in the Bible. It needs to be their road map through life.

Children do need to be taught to think. Children need to be taught to see all sides of an issue. After seeing all sides of an issue, they will only make good choices when they have the teachings of the Bible as the ultimate guide upon which to weigh all things.

If children do not have knowledge of the Bible, they are prone to become double-minded and unstable in all their ways when confronted by teachers who try to lead them down paths of questioning with no answers.

Children should not be taught that there is no ultimate truth, that each must find their own.

God tells us in Deuteronomy 6 precisely how to teach our children. Jesus is the ultimate Truth.

The child should be able to say, “My strength cometh from the Lord who made the heavens and the earth.”

The child should be able to say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Children need parents who teach them the Bible morning, noon, and night. Children need a core of strength, which only comes from God.

Ask and it shall be given.

May God richly bless you and help you to teach your children.
