A few weeks ago I started discussing ways that we as parents can pass on a love for the Lord to our children. The first way I mentioned was that we ourselves must have a love for the Lord if we expect our kids to love Him. The phrase, “Do as I say, not as I do” is, unfortunately, many parent’s mindset when it comes to things of the Lord. However, if we have a passion for Christ, our children are sure to see this in our lives and have more of a desire to pursue Him.
Today I’m going to highlight one avenue that each parent should use when teaching their children about the Lord. This is the biblical concept of attending church. Hebrews 10:25 states, “Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together.” We are commanded in Scripture to make church attendance a practice in our lives.
