The word guides. The word guards the heart. Now the heart is perhaps the most important part of the human body. An anomaly in the heart is not what anyone prays for. May our heart not pack up in Jesus name.
Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.
Proverbs 4:23 AMP
One way to safe guard our heart is to carefully sieve what we allow inside and one way this can be done is through the word. The word guides and guards.
Parents, let’s teach our children the word of God always. The word of God should always serve as a guide for us to follow.
The above scripture shows how important it is for us to guard our hearts. You cannot just allow anything into your heart.
Children, what does that mean? Do you know thoughts are very powerful? That is why we must ensure that we always think about positive things. And the word guides you to think positive thoughts.
That’s why the scriptures says in
Finally, my friends, keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy, friendly, and proper. Don’t ever stop thinking about what is truly worthwhile and worthy of praise.
Phil 4:8 (CEV)
This verse gives us a list of what to think about. So when next you are catch yourself wondering in thoughts or thinking about anything, check if it fits in the above description of what we are expected to be thinking about.
Children, ensure you always read the word of God and make it your guide. The word guides!
Think about the promises of God in His words.
Prayer for children:
My children receive grace to always study the word of God.
Prayer for parents:
Lord, please help us to teach our children your word always, in Jesus Name. Amen
The word of God dwells richly in the hearts of my children always. The word guides my children.
