Parents, you must know the Word of God.
Grandparents, you must know the Word of God.
People of the Lord, you must know the Word of God.
One of many reasons, aside from the fact that the Lord told us so.
“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!
“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.
“You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.
We must teach the Word diligently to our children.
We must seize every moment - in word and deed.
They must hear the Word from us.
They must see the Word from us.
Then we will be “ready” for the following…
Camp (four-year old grandson) after bedtime prayer:
“Pepa, where is God?”
“Pepa, does God poop?”
“Pepa, does God pee?”
“Pepa, is God here?”
“Pepa, how can God be everywhere all the time?”
“Pepa…” there were more than I can remember…
We must be ready in season and out of season.
We must be the vessels of the Lord’s instruction to the following generations.
We must trust the Lord to give us the insight at an age appropriate level for all inquiries.
If we trust.
