1 Samuel 2:1-36; Isaiah 44:24-45:25; 2 Corinthians 5:11-6:10
Therefore shall ye lay up these my words. Deuteronomy 11:18
God was preparing His people to enter the Promised Land and He wanted to make sure His Word went with them and their descendants (Deut. 11:21). Parents were to pass His Word down to their children. They were to teach it to them whenever and wherever they had opportunity to do so (11:19). They were to attend to it openly so that both parents and children could be reminded of it always and be blessed (11:21). Do we as parents seek to apply these worthy practices in relation to our children? —K. C. Ung
Happy the home where prayer is heard,
And praise is wont to rise;
Where parents love the sacred Word,
And all its wisdom prize. —Henry Ware Jr.
