The most important thing a parent can do is to walk the walk and talk the talk (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). By diligently pursuing Jesus, we help facilitate our children’s relationship with Him. Nothing makes our faith in Jesus more appealing to others, especially our children, than seeing us truly live out what we believe. And nothing is a greater turnoff to following Jesus than seeing someone separate their real life from their religious life. When we love Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and talk about why we are doing so, we help our children learn how to relate to God well.
