These commandments that I gave you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you set it home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down in when you get up.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 NIV
Keep my head and heart aligned with You Father, so that my feet will always follow. Amen.
Whether you have children of your own, children in your family, or children that you know and mentor at a school, church, or in your neighborhood—recite these words and make them your truth:
“I WILL teach my children to love God, respect authority, and live responsibly.”
The African proverb is true, “it takes a village to raise a child” and we have not consistently come together as a village to raise, nurture, support, and correct our children. We need to redirect and realign them. Let’s start today!
