Deuteronomy 31:9-13

How many times have you heard or read this verse? "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might" (Deut. 6:5). I'm guessing many times, but did you know that right after this statement Moses commands the Israelites to diligently teach these words and other commands from God to their children? He then spells out what he means by the word teach--talk of God's commands when you're sitting in your house, when you're walking, when you lie down and when you get up. He's basically saying we need to be teaching God's Word and ways to our children non-stop.

How important is it that we share God's Word with younger generations? What role are you playing? What are some ways you "teach" God's Word and His ways to your children as a parent or grandparent, or children generally if you're not a parent? Tami W.

P.S. Take a listen to today's Back to the Bible program as author/speaker Jeffrey Dean talks more about reclaiming our youth for God.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for waiting so patiently for today's blog! We gave the blog a little behind-the-scenes makeover yesterday which led to some unexpected issues today. But everything is back on track, and we'd love to hear your comments.

This best way I know to share God's Word with the younger generation is to get them into the Word themselves. Developing a life of being constantly in God's Word and learning from it develops a love affair with it and with the God who gave it to us.
