DEUTERONOMY 6:7-LET'S HELP PARENTS DO IT!

Sometimes it seems that children's ministers are held primarily 

responsible for faith development in children. Biblically, that isn't 
the case. In Deuteronomy 6 the mandate is clearly given to mothers 
and fathers. They are to love God completely and teach His 
commands to their children within the context of daily living.
 However, this Old Testament mandate was not the 
responsibility of the family alone. The parents' instruction was to 
be affirmed by a loving faith community. What was modeled and 
taught in the home was also modeled and taught within the 
community. The family and community partnered together
 to nurture faith in the next generation.

In the New Testament parents are also challenged to teach 
their children in the ways of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4 ). But again, 
this is done within the faith community-a faith community that has 
been given the mandate to prepare God's people (even kids) for
 works of service and bring all believers (even kids) to spiritual maturity 
(Ephesians 4:11-13).

So, if we are to biblically and effectively nurture faith in our children, 
we cannot JUST provide effective ministry to children. We must 
also help parents live out Deuteronomy 6:5-7.

Read this week's Children's Ministries blog for some ways that local
 churches can help parents live out Deuteronomy 6:5-7.
