Brian & Taylor share the fourth and final lesson that every parent needs to know from Deuteronomy 6. Recap:
- Love God with every fiber of your being (Deuteronomy 6:4-5).
- Teach them every chance you get (Deuteronomy 6:6-9).
- Be aware of false gods (Deuteronomy 6:13-14).
- Prepare to answer (Deuteronomy 6:20-25).
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.

Mars Hill Church was skyrocketing in membership, budgets, and global impact, but their dynamic leader was destroying lives in the process. We diagnose the tragic fall of an influential church and their leader-turned-authoritarian, Mark Driscoll.
