Episode Info: We teach and teach and teach our kids...but have you ever asked yourself what the Bible has to say about teaching? As Christian homeschool moms we often get caught up in our daily school activities: teaching core academic subjects such as writing and arithmetic, science and history, or even music and art. We understand the importance of teaching these subjects. We also understand how important it is to teach God’s Word to our kids. But why is teaching important, and what does the Bible really have to say about our role as both moms and teachers? But what does the bible say about teaching children? On today’s podcast I want to cover this topic by giving you a few scriptures to think about and ponder in the weeks to come as you set out on the daily task of raising, loving and teaching your kids. Know that God has a plan for your kids and for your family. Your availability is important to your family and your teaching is not in vain. During this month of February, I want to focus on love: loving our families and ourselves. Truly honoring God means taking care of the beautiful blessings He’s placed in our lives. Those blessings often come in many different forms: our families health finances hobbies and skills opportunities to serve opportunities to be a friend and a support system abilities to do things well- such as cook, offer someone a ride or give an encouraging word Today, we talk about the blessing and the enormous duty of being a mother through the lens of God’s Word. What does God have to say about not only mothering our kids- but the art of teaching our children? Let’s dig in… What does the bible say about teaching children? Show them the way. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6. If you’re teaching your kids, you are showing them the way to go. This means our attitude towards our kids should be “Do as I do” and not so much “do as I say”. Showing them the way means we have to model for our children, giving them a path to follow. We show them what to do and how to do it, then we watch them copy us. That's ultimately what we want: to show our children how to do life. For example, whenever you choose to have a family bible time or bible study together, you are giving your kids a great experience to role model. You are showing them what they can hopefully pass down to their future families and next generations. Teach them diligently. There is a reason that conferences like Teach Them Diligently exist! :-) There is a verse that sums this all up: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. Deut. 6:5-7 What does it mean to be diligent...
