“My Kids Are Too Young to Understand About God. They’ll Pick It Up When They’re Ready. Right?”

Your kids are never too young to know about God. They are learning other things from you already. Why is it that so many people seem to think it is OK to put off teaching their children about God? Could it be the parents do not have a close relationship with God themselves to know how to teach their children about Him? It is never too early to begin… for them… or you.

Wrong. Your kids are never too young to know about God. They are learning other things from you already. Why is it that so many people seem to think it is OK to put off teaching their children about God? Could it be the parents do not have a close relationship with God themselves to know how to teach their children about Him? It is never too early to begin… for them… or you. What does the Bible say about it?

Deuteronomy 6:4-7 (NASB)
4 “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! 5 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.

Psalms 78:1-8 (NASB)
1 Listen, O my people, to my instruction; Incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, 3 Which we have heard and known, And our fathers have told us. 4 We will not conceal them from their children, But tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done. 5 For He established a testimony in Jacob And appointed a law in Israel, Which He commanded our fathers That they should teach them to their children, 6 That the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, That they may arise and tell them to their children, 7 That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments, 8 And not be like their fathers, A stubborn and rebellious generation, A generation that did not prepare its heart And whose spirit was not faithful to God.
