CR West Week 9 ~ 11/9
To Know God and Make Him Known
#1 We are to teach them about God (Deuteronomy 6:7)
#2 We are to discipline them (Proverbs 23:13)
#3 We are to be thankful for them (Psalm 127:3-5)
#4 We are not to exasperate them (Ephesians 6:4)
Thankfully (?) the Bible does not address what type of cereal is best for them, how much screen time is too much, and whether or not caffeine really does stunt their growth. LOL! In all seriousness, if you're like me you may tend to get wrapped up in worldly expectations and pursuits when it comes to child-rearing. These four reminders served to free me from some of the pressure I feel as a homeschool by mom by reminding me that God keeps it simple: love Him, love others. I will not meet each of these four precepts every day, but by His grace He is helping me and shaping me as I desire to raise them up to follow after Him.
