Teaching by Example

Psalm 34 11

Verse of the Day: Psalm 34:11

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

 

The best gift we can give our children is to teach them to obey and follow the Lord which leads to wisdom, prosperity and a happy life. Teaching children to fear the Lord doesn’t mean they should be afraid of Him, it means they should respect Him and put Him first in their lives. Fear of the Lord requires awe, reverence, adoration, honor, worship, faith, trust, thankfulness and love.  We teach these to our children not just by word but by example. Share Jesus, the greatest gift of all, with your children.

Speak Up

FB_IMG_1538039028511

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 31:8

Speak up for people who cannot speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless. (GNT)

Speak up for the people who have no voice. Stand up for the oppressed. It is our duty to help those who cannot help themselves. We need to go out into the world and donate our time, money and resources for the poor, needy and suffering. We need to bring Jesus into the lives of others so they too may know the mercy, forgiveness, and love of God.

Do You Hear What I Hear?

1 12-20 1 Mark 16 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Mark 16:15

He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”

 

This Christmas carol describes how the news of Jesus’ birth might have swept across the land. From the lamb to the shepherd boy all the way to the king and everyone in between the story of the birth of the Savior, the light of the world, is being shared.  Today, we also have the same commission and more. We’re to share not only the news of the birth of Jesus Christ but also His teachings, His death, His resurrection, and His second coming.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

1 12-1 1 Proverbs 22 6.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 22:6

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

 

Christmas is a great opportunity to start teaching children about Jesus.  You can find ways to teach them the story of how and why Jesus was born and the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior.  For example, you can read stories from the Bible or children’s books appropriate for their level of understanding, you can sing Christmas carols and talk about their origins, or you can use a nativity scene and other decorations, like a star to explain what they represent.  Make the most of this occasion to share Jesus with your family.
