Q. How does one encourage and cultivate a love for the Lord and His Word in young children?
Cultivating a love for the Lord and His word “Starts with You.” In Scripture, God specifically places the responsibility for nurturing a child’s spiritual development on parents as seen in Deuteronomy 6:1-7 and Psalm 78. We are told to seek God and His word for discovering the values we should pass on to our children. The most powerful influence we have during our children’s early spiritual formations occurs through how we love and relate to them daily amidst the easy and difficult times.
