Teach our children the Greatest Commandment

from Deuteronomy 6:5-7

“You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might!
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart:
you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.”

When the love of God is taught diligently, what is the result? Hear what the psalmist writes in Psalm 71:17.

“O God, You have taught me from my youth: And to this day I declare Your wondrous works. Now also when I am old and gray-headed, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come.”

One generation telling the next about God, telling the next generation about how we shall love God with all our heart, soul and might, telling the next generation about God’s amazing love for us.
