Deuteronomy 6:4-7 "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 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."
Few people, perhaps, would make the connection between loving God and teaching children the faith, but this is exactly what God commands parents to do to show their love for Him. It makes perfect sense when you think about it. There is no greater gift than eternal life, no finer thing to teach our children than God's love for sinners, his desire to forgive and save us through faith in Jesus Christ. Though the church of Christ is made up of souls of all ages, young and old, we all have the charge from Christ to love each other as he loved us. The older ones teach the younger ones the faith, the younger ones take care of the older ones when they get too old to take care of themselves. The beautiful bride of Christ is a community of love and caring, and this is what makes the church so beautiful. Come and hear more this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
