Teaching God's Word to our Children

Christian mom teaching her child

As believers, we desire for our children to know, love, believe, and live out God’s word in their lives. While it is the job of the Spirit to apply the word to our children’s heart, we have a duty to teach our children God’s word.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Ways to Teach Children Scripture

Read Together: Read God’s word together as a family each day. Discuss what you’ve read, what it means, and what it teaches about God.

Memorize Scripture together: For younger children, start with one verse. As they get older, children can memorize several verses at once and then entire chapters. Post the verse where everyone can see it and practice it each day.

Apply Scripture to all of life: Apply God’s word to all of life or putting them into practice is the most important thing to do so you must discuss it with your child.

Pray for God to work: Last but never least, pray for God to apply his word to your children’s heart. Pray for the word to convict, instruct, and guide their heart. Pray that they would grow in their love for God.

Teaching kids biblical principles is a challenging undertaking. But your willingness to teach God's Word is the first and most important step.
