We have implemented something in our household this week that I wanted to share with you all! We were discussing holiness during a recent ministry conference. There had been a video by Leonard Ravenhill where he said that if you expect your children to walk in holiness, you must first do the same. A very simple, yet powerful truth – lead by example. And thus began the wheels a-turnin’ in my brain. How can we, as a family, grow closer to Him and the holy lifestyle that He has called us to? Well, since our daughter is a mere 3 years old I decided we should start “small”. Gaining wisdom from Proverbs 22, where it says:
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
So, we are learning scripture together! We have decided to find “simple” scriptures each week to learn. We write them on our chalkboard in our kitchen and recite them and use them as reminders for how to live our lives.
When we see the scripture for that week, we are parents are reminded to uphold His Word AND to speak it over our daughter and teach her His Words. This has been a great reminder to never lose sight of His glorious and wonderful Word that He has given us. What an honor it is to be able to read and understand His Word AND to be able to teach it to our children!
Have a blessed evening!
