“And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 6:7 KJV).
“And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up” (Deuteronomy 11:19).
A recent study revealed only nine percent of Americans over age 55 have a biblical worldview. As touching Generation X—ages 40 to 55—it is just five percent. Finally, a mere two percent of American Millennials (Generation Y)—those aged 24 to 39 years—have a biblical worldview. Each successive generation of Americans has become less accustomed to Scripture, thus explaining the sharp decline in morals and ethics today! Likewise, although God warned Israel, they too failed to teach His words to their children.
Deuteronomy chapter 4: “ Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you…  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.  Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people….
“ Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;  Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.”
Saints, may we take Romans through Philemon, and teach our children the Message of Grace… before it is eternally too late!
