My Strategies for Teaching God’s Word to My Children

Today I posted a video on my YouTube channel, where I talked about my strategy for teaching the Word of God to my children. In Deuteronomy chapter 6 starting in verse 7, we are directed to teach our children about the Lord:

Teach them persistently to your children. Talk about them when you are sitting at home, when you are walking along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as a sign on your arms and pin them on your forehead.” (Deuteronomy 6. 7-8)

My children have a morning routine that includes devotionals, in addition to hygiene, making their bed, and prayer, before eating breakfast and leaving for school. But even though devotional is in their morning routine, there is still the teaching time that I do with them, the same way I did when they were still little. When my three children were very young, the services were done in a very playful way. They had coloring books, children’s Bibles, and they watched cartoons of the Bible stories as well. But as they got older and their schoolwork and extracurricular activities increased, I needed to review the format of this home service.

One of the strategies I use is to have the service during breakfast; it works very well. It is a moment where we are all together, and while they have their breakfast, I read the Word of the day and we talk about it. So they leave for the school environment, nourished both physically and spiritually.

During the day, there are many moments where I bring Bible verses and passages into their routine, to educate them. Doing the devotional with them over breakfast, is just one of the ways that I brought here today, to share with you. I’ll be back to share more strategies, soon.

God bless your life and your family.
