Deuteronomy 6:7 says to teach our children God’s commands along the way of life.
It is important that we train our children to watch what they say. We can save them from a lot of heartache by simply teaching them to think before speaking.
(You’ll notice in the video that we had done a “dry run through” so the kids are a bit more “dramatic”and taking the words out of my mouth – so funny! I wish it were a little less scripted but you get the point!)
James 3:5,6 says “The tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.”
The next time your kids are brushing their teeth or your cooking with Hot Sauce – add a little spiritual lesson in there just for fun! I think it’s these little teaching moments along the way of life that really stick.
