Fathers and Scripture

Malachi 4:6 talks about a closeness between fathers and their children: "he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers."

(Deuteronomy 6:7 NKJV) "You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up."

It is important to make the most of different situations to teach your children about the Lord.

(2 Timothy 3:15 NIV) "and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus."

It is never too early to teach your children about the Lord and the Word of God!

(Psalms 78:4-7 NLT) "We will not hide these truths from our children but will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD. We will tell of his power and the mighty miracles he did. For he issued his decree to Jacob; he gave his law to Israel. He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children, so the next generation might know them-- even the children not yet born-- that they in turn might teach their children. So each generation can set its hope anew on God, remembering his glorious miracles and obeying his commands."

The main reason for teaching our children about the Lord and the Word of God is that they will come to know Him and obey Him.

(Deuteronomy 4:9 NLT) "But watch out! Be very careful never to forget what you have seen the LORD do for you. Do not let these things escape from your mind as long as you live! And be sure to pass them on to your children and grandchildren."

One of the most important ways we can teach these things to the Lord is through example. Our actions speak louder than our words.

(Ephesians 6:4 NLT) "And now a word to you fathers. Don't make your children angry by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction approved by the Lord."

It is important not to discipline our children in anger. It should never be abusive in nature. It should always be done in love.

There is one important thing to remember. There are certain guidelines in Scripture on raising your children. However, there may be differences on how to apply them to raising children. Each family and child is different. Therefore, it is important to respect each other's opinions.
