We’re all busy. Kids’ activities. Your activities. You feel more like a taxi service and juggler than a mom or dad. Adding one more thing seems overwhelming. Especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. Mom and Dad, the only way to ensure God’s Word is in our kids’ hearts is to read it to them and help them practice what they’re learning. Try this. Pick a Proverb each week. Read it. For example, Proverbs 13. Then pick a verse each day, and practice that verse. “A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, but a mocker does not respond to rebukes” is just one example (Proverbs 13:1, NIV). When your kids obey, tell them they’re following Proverbs 13:1. You can also download our free Keys for Kids devotional app.
