God’s desire is clear. He wants parents to instruct their children using His word. This is not a job for the church Sunday school teachers along, but rather our job as parents. We are with our children more than anyone, so we have more opportunities to ‘train them in the way they should go.’
Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it. Proverbs 22:6 NLT
The below verses is clear. God directed us to teach our parents His word.
And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deutetronomy 6:6-9 NLT
The following verses are great ones to teach your children. They explain how children should treat their parents, and explain the free gift of salvation.
Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do. “Honor your father and mother.” This is the first commandment with a promise: If you honor your father and mother, “things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth. Ephesians 6:1-3 NLT
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23 NLT
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NLT
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9 NLT
If you haven’t been spending time with your children to teach them God’s word, it is never too late to start.
