Deuteronomy 6:6-7 tells us, as God’s people and as parents, to have an unwavering commitment to His commands:
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.
Of course, God doesn’t expect us to speak exclusively about spiritual matters. It refers primarily to times of leisure: resting at home, taking a walk, and spending time with family. We all have jobs to do and business to transact. But Deuteronomy 6:6-7 implies that if God’s Word is a regular part of our private conversations, it will infuse all of our conduct when we—and our children—are “out in the world.”
Ask God to plant His truth deep within your heart so that it becomes a natural part of your conversation with your children and others.
