Ron T. has a good thought today on his blog, as usual, about teaching children, the next generation. I commented over there and said that parents are mostly derelict in their duty. Ron started a short list of what children ought to be taught:
Some of the things that need to be taught young people (and older folk also) would be the historicity of Jesus, salvation from sin, the nature and importance of the Lord’s church, the day of judgment that is before us all. these are but a few very important points of teaching.
What would you add to this list?
Friends, we must teach at home. Fathers, that responsibility falls especially upon you, as the spiritual guides of the home. Plan what, how, when you’re going to do this. Give it much, much thought. It is the greatest and highest responsibility we have.
Anyone familiar with a home curriculum for teaching one’s children the story of the Bible? Not homeschool material, necessarily, but something for an organized approach for parents?
Most parents do more planning for their vacation than they do for their children’s instruction in the Lord. There’s more movie watching and internet surfing than Bible reading. To the great shame of parents and to the children’s eternal danger.
