Fostering a Love for God’s Word

As many of you know, my rule for myself is to set no words before my eyes each day, until I have read the Bible. It was a life-changing and life-giving decision I made years ago that really transformed my days. Setting my mind on God before anything else each day is right where my mind needs to be.

Bible Reading Family

I have also been teaching my kids to do the same.

Training my children to have their own personal time with the Lord is so important and a lesson they will take with them long after they are out of my home. And Lord willing, one they will pass down to their children. (remember, we affect future generations!)

For my youngest boy, I bought The Action Bible for him for Christmas last year. As an emerging reader, the pages were engaging, and well…for boys…just perfect. Full of action.

I find that when we read our Bible together as a family each night, many of the stories are already alive in his mind. He will say to me, “Oh, I saw those pictures in my Bible.” (when he first got the Bible he wasn’t reading solely by himself yet.)

There is no greater gift than to give our children a love for His Word.

Personal Bible time is great. Talking about scripture all throughout the day. And then concluding with family Bible time at night. That is how we are giving our children the gift of His Word and hoping to foster a dependence on His Word. It is woven throughout our day, and we know that it is the foundation of our walk.

Bring conversations back to the Lord…Ask, “What does God’s Word say about this?” Those kinds of statements help us all refocus during difficult moments or just ordinary moments. It all goes back to Him.
