“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord; and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart; and 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.”— 1 Deuteronomy 6:4-7
Live It! Tip of the Week:
With your spouse, schedule a particular time of family prayer this week. Discuss where it will be in your home and what format you want to follow. Consider including a time of spontaneous prayer so you can begin to teach your children how to speak with God. Remember: It does not have to perfect; it just needs to happen!
Lord, grant me the strength and wisdom to lead my family in knowing you, loving you, and serving you. Give me the grace to say, as Joshua did, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
