Know, Respect & Honor

Image result for clipart for Deuteronomy 31:13I was working the other day on re-writing the Sunday school curriculum I wrote a few years ago and came across a verse which I'm sure I must have read before - more than once, but just truly "noticed" . . . .
Deuteronomy 31:13 - Their children must hear it read too. They don’t know this law yet. They too must learn to have respect for the Lord your God. They must honor him as long as you live in the land.
This verse is absolutely true - our children must hear about God because they do not know Him. They must learn to have respect for God and honor Him; for this to truly happen, they must see we respect and honor Him.

Friday night when the boys were here for a sleep-over, Josiah was having trouble going to sleep - he has quite an imagination. So, I prayed for him and asked God to fill his mind with peaceful, joyful thoughts so he could rest and go to sleep. Within minutes he was asleep and he slept all night! When he woke up he said he had slept really well and he had a joyful, happy spirit! We talked about how God answered our prayer and he was so excited to see how God did exactly this!

My grandsons absolutely will hear about God, His Word, His great love for them, His amazing grace and how He answers prayer! They will absolutely see how I respect and honor God and they will experience both talking with God and seeing how God answers our prayers because at the end of the day, I want my three grandsons to grow to be people who know, respect and honor God. There is nothing more important to me.
