DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Teach Children The Things Of God
Two important things this text teaches: Loving God does not come naturally – it must be taught and the family is the ideal place to teach the love of God. We must remember that people came into this world like a blank video cassette in a camcorder, clean and fresh – ready for input. Francis Xavier, a great Catholic educator sard: “Give me a child until he is 7 and anyone else can have him for life. It is the responsibility of parents to teach their children the things of God and the duties of children to follow the instructions of the parents. Spiritual values are going to be learned in the family.
Point of Emphasis: Do you want to teach your children to love God? Teach your children the values of God.
Prayer Point: Lord, help our family to spend quality time before you to study the things that pertain to you.
