Every day will I bless Thee, and I will praise Thy name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised, and His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise Thy works to another, and shall declare Thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honor of Thy majesty, and of Thy wondrous works. (Psalm 145:2-5) (KJ21)
And these words which I command thee this day shall be in thine heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them as a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. (Deuteronomy 6:6-8) (KJ21)
Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. (Psalm 34:11) (NIV)Consider the privilege Christian mothers have in sharing, in reading, the Word of God to their children, with their children! That is a gift--a true gift that blesses both mother and child! Consider the privilege Christian mothers have in praising God with their children! Include your children in your spiritual life!
Treasure the Word of God, make the Bible a part of your life. Let your kids see you reading and studying the Word! Let them see how MUCH you value it. (If you don't value it, they may not either. If you consider Bible-reading a chore, they might too.) Let them see you make time for Bible reading! Show them that God is number one in your life! Desire God! Let kids see you delighting in God!
Oh the lessons mothers can pass down to their children! Oh the spiritual legacies mothers can leave for their children! Let your children see your passion for God! Show them, teach them, and above all PRAY for them.
