Parenting Lessons from Deuteronomy 6 (part 2)

The 2nd big parenting lesson is: "Teach them every chance you get"  (see Deuteronomy 6:6-9).

God answers our question before it can escape our lips: “When am I supposed to teach my kids about you?”

Parents have more time and influence with their kids than any other person or organization. It’s not even close. If you think, “I just don’t have any time. I’m maxed out,” priority #1 in your life is to figure out the quickest, wisest plan to free up some time. Your kids need you, and they need you to teach them with your words and actions.

Oklahoma is welcoming the third highest number of Afghan refugees. There are plenty of voices saying plenty of things, but we're asking: "What does it mean to think Biblically about this?"

But more importantly, we learn how every leader, eldership, and church member have responsibilities in guiding their church towards God-honoring health.
