A Responsible Legacy

You have the answer for a confused generation.

Deuteronomy 11:19 – You shall teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Without question, America is experiencing a time of confusion, often led by misinformation. What is happening to the nation? Why does it seem like the country is on a downward slide—a dangerous path? Why are our young people rioting in the streets? Has their initial call for police reform been silenced by their own violence and mayhem?

God gave a directive to parents. It wasn’t a suggestion. It was an imperative: You shall teach your children. It has been repeated often throughout Scripture…teach, teach, teach!  Have American parents abandoned their responsibility?

There is a rich heritage available to American Christian parents, one they need to be diligent to pass on.  Teach your children, regardless of their age, of God’s plan for salvation in Jesus first of all. Teach them of the believers of the past, what they endured to hold onto faith and the Gospel so that they might have it available for them, particularly in the written Word of God. Teach them that America’s founding fathers had a vision that they shed their blood for, a vision of freedom. Teach them that, through the nation’s founding documents, their intent was clear for God to place His stamp on this country.

Today’s verse says there is not a time when the opportunity to teach is not there. If you are to pass on a responsible legacy to your children, even if they are adults with children of their own, you must know Jesus, God’s Word, and the real American history.

Pray With Us

Dear Lord, You have said that we never stop parenting our children…that it is a responsibility that we must continue with throughout their lives. Just as I was quick to correct them when they were little, help me to be literate enough in Your Word that I am able to correct them when they are moving away from You onto their own path. Remind me to keep my words sweet but firm. Imbue me with knowledge to represent You rightly. Thank You for Your love, Heavenly Father,
