Teach Them to Your Children

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, 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. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Deuteronomy 6:6-9

This is one of my husband’s favorite verses. Writing God’s word in our children’s hearts, and on the doorposts of the place that they feel safe and secure. What better way to ensure that they know God’s great love for them!

We are sharing with you today some of the verses we have up in our homes. These are some of the ones we talk about when we sit at home, and when we walk along the road.

Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. Proverbs 31:25

And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith. Matthew 21:22

For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12

And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust. Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Psalm 143:8

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11

The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance1 upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

This is our prayer for you today as you walk along the road with your family. Have a beautiful day!
