Teach Your Children God's Word

I have given them Your Word ... John 17:14 (NIV)

"There's only one way to help your kids be free: Teach them the Truth that will set them free. "

You can become a spiritual leader to your children by developing the characteristics that evident in Jesus as he taught his disciples for three years.

He taught them that the Word of God is our foundation. It's what we build our lives on and it's what our children should build their lives on. God's Word is the truth, and Jesus said, "... You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32, TEV)

I want my kids to be free: I don't want them bound up by guilt.  I don't want them bound up by worry.  I don't want my kids messed up by resentment.  I don't want them to be pressured by the expectations of others. 

There's only one way to help your kids be free: Teach them the Truth that will set them free.  Teach them that, when you build your life on God's Word, then you live a life of genuine freedom.  A life built on God's Truth is filled with happiness, joy, passion and purpose. You will spare your kids an awful lot of headaches and heartaches and heartbreaks if you teach them to rely on God's Word as the sole authority for their lives.

God expects you to be the primary teacher of His word and that means you have to know God's Word yourself! Like many people, you may need to catch up by getting into a Bible study. Then, teach your children to study the Bible for themselves. 

Jesus said, "I gave them the message that you gave me, and they received it; they know that it is true that I came from you, and they believe that you sent me." (John 17:8, TEV)
