The Greatest Commandment Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Parents, you are… God’s representatives to your kids until they reach an age of accountability. The primary faith and love trainers. This can’t be outsourced like academics, music and sports. More powerful than you can imagine in the lives of your sons and daughters. God’s chosen heros for your kids. Invited to Legacy Milestone 2 Seminar – Feb. 13, 11:30-1pm at FSK.
