Great Responsibility

Deuteronomy 6:6-7: “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them in your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.”

Devo in a nutshell:

Have you ever stopped and thought about what a great privilege and responsibility we have to teach our children and grandchildren about the Lord? 
Our passage today tells us this is something we should be doing.
But before we can teach our children and grandchildren about the Lord, He must be on our hearts!!! In other words we must have a personal and I would say intimate relationship with Him ourselves.
When we have that kind of relationship, then it becomes a part of who we are to share about who He is. We will see the importance, find the time and at every opportunity share about the Lord with them.
The passage says talk with them when you are at home and when you are on the road; at night and during the day. There is never a bad time to share about Jesus.
Make Jesus the number priority of your life and share Him. Understand what a great privilege we have been given!

Lord help me to alway realize that I am helping to raise the present as well as future generations.

Have a great day in the Lord
