O. This passage jumped out at me. The main thing is the cause and effect relationship. The new generation didn’t know the Lord or what He had done for them, and as a result, they cared nothing for Him and worshiped other gods. The older generation failed to do their job of passing along the history and love of God to their children, and as a result, there was a falling-out. It’s important that as a parent I pass on to my child(ren someday) a love of God and an understanding of who He is and what He has done for every one of us.
A. My daughter is still too young to understand much, but it’s never too early to start thinking about how I can lead her in her relationship with God. I want her to be able to look at my life and what I’ve told her and not to see huge disparities.
P. God, I want my life to reflect your love for us, and my love for my family to reflect your love for them. Guide me in the decisions that I make and help me to lead my children to a relationship with you.
What do you do with your children to help lead them toward Christ?
