    *THE KEY TO LEARNING*

    _It is advisable to read the text first_

    📜 *TEXT:* DEUTERONOMY 6:4-15📜

    🔑📖 *KEY VERSE*: _*”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).*_

    A father and son went fishing one day. After a couple of hours out in the boat, the boy suddenly became curious about the world around him. He asked his father, “How does this boat float?” His father replied, “Don’t rightly know, son.” The boy returned to his contemplation, then turned back to his father, “How do fish breathe underwater?” Once again, his father replied, “Don’t rightly know, son.” A little later, the boy asked his father, “Why is the sky blue?” He got the same answer. Worried he was going to annoy his father, he said, “Dad, do you mind my asking you all these questions?” “Of course not son, if you don’t ask questions you’ll never learn anything!”

    The Lord, through Moses their leader, warned Israel against the tendency to forget their God when they got to the Promised Land. They were cautioned against complacency and carelessness that could set in when life improved in comfortable houses, fields and vineyards as promised by God. They were not only to retain the knowledge and the love of God in their hearts, but they were also to make signage of them throughout the environment where they lived. They were to teach their children diligently about them. They were to keep the lessons Moses taught them all through their lives and refuse to allow the culture and religion of their heathen neighbours influence them.

    Our forefathers managed to keep the traditions of elders alive by telling stories to their children and grandchildren of the good old days. We must imbibe that practice in Christianity today. We must set aside time to teach our children and answer their questions both at home, in school and church. It is good to pass on every knowledge that is needed to the children when they are young and tender. The Bible makes it clear that they will not depart from it as they grow older (Proverbs 22:6).

    ✍🏽 *THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:*

    _*God is honoured when His word is preserved from generation to generation.*_

    📜THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:

    *2 KINGS 1-2*📜

    *MEDITATION*

    *The foundational curriculum for children*

    A child’s behaviour is formed by what he sees and hears coupled with environmental factors. This becomes more complex in a new world of social media. What should we start exposing our children to as foundational? Of course, it is moral education.

    *1. The affection*

    Children should be brought up in such a way that they will have love and affections for the things of God and not hate them, v5. This will take wisdom and emotional intelligence.

    *2. Their attitude*

    It is the matter of the heart that moulds attitude. Their training should not just appeal to mental knowledge alone, it should be imparted in such a cherished way that their hearts and their attitude are positively affected, v6.

    *3. The atmosphere*

    It is not every atmosphere that is conducive to learning. The command outlines places that learning must take place in vv7,8. Can you identify those places? Doesn’t that mean everywhere?

    *Note*

    The Israelites were farmers and shepherds who worked in the fields. Do you notice that the field atmosphere was omitted? Why? They were not expected to use the excuse of training children in the word of God and abandon their secular work. They should work and teach their children to work when they are expected to be working. There is time for everything.

    *4. The add-ups*

    They were expected to exploit the power of pictures or beautiful pictorial displays, including videos, to drive home the moral education to the children, vv8,9. Children learn more with pictures.

    *5. The admonitions*

    Man has the tendency to forget God or compromise easily when there is pleasure and prosperity than under poverty. This is true at all times. So we are exhorted to be careful and vigilant.

    *6. Anger*

    What are the things that must be avoided in order not to court the anger of God?, vv14,15.

    *Questions*

    a. How can the 6 points above be practically applied to the moral education of the children in the family and the church?

    b. What is the importance of DILIGENCE mentioned in the text?

    c. What are the modern gods of this modern age that are now institutionalised which believers should avoid in order to avoid the anger of God?

    *Prayer points*

    Ask for wisdom and diligence in child training🙏

    Pray that our children will love the Lord and the things of God they are being exposed to🙏

    Ask God that our children will not be deceived by the world and the modern gods of this generation🙏

    Ask God to help parents and churches to rise to the challenge of diligent children training🙏

    *HYMN:*

    *I’ve Anchored In Jesus:*

    1 Upon life’s boundless ocean where mighty billows roll,

    I’ve fixed my hope in Jesus, blest anchor of my soul;

    When trials fierce assail me as storms are gath’ring o’er,

    I rest upon His mercy and trust Him more.

    *Refrain:*

    I’ve anchored in Jesus, The storms of life I’ll brave,

    I’ve anchored in Jesus, I fear no wind or wave,

    I’ve anchored in Jesus for he hath pow’r to save,

    I’ve anchored in the Rock of Ages.

    2 He keeps my soul from evil and gives me blessed peace,

    His voice hath stilled the waters and bid their tumult cease;

    My Pilot and Deliv’rer, to Him I all confide,

    For always when I need Him, He’s at my side.

    *Refrain:*

    I’ve anchored in Jesus, The storms of life I’ll brave,

    I’ve anchored in Jesus, I fear no wind or wave,

    I’ve anchored in Jesus for he hath pow’r to save,

    I’ve anchored in the Rock of Ages.

    3 He is my Friend and Saviour, in him my anchor’s cast.

    He drives away my sorrows and shields me from the blast;

    By faith I’m looking upward beyond life’s troubled sea,

    There I behold a haven prepared for me.

    *Refrain:*

    I’ve anchored in Jesus, The storms of life I’ll brave,

    I’ve anchored in Jesus, I fear no wind or wave,

    I’ve anchored in Jesus for he hath pow’r to save,

    I’ve anchored in the Rock of Ages.*DAILY ⓂANNA*
