Family Friday~~Reading the WORD

Welcome to family friday again!

We are here to help celebrate our families and help them grow! By growth we need spiritual as well as mental!

Take your time and study the word with your kids. I don't do it all the time; I sometimes let my son read the word to me. As a 10 year old he comes up with some very profound things that are beneficial to everybody.

Either way, here are some scriptures I think would be great to start a conversation in your house:

Proverbs 1:8
Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and do not forsake your mother's teaching.
Proverbs 19:13
A foolish son is his father's ruin, and a quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping.
Ephesians 6:4
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord
Proverbs 22:6 (Whole Chapter)
Train [ Or Start ] a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Learning and reading the word of God is never simple. It's an experience all in itself that is different for every family. Children are the people that will help us later on in life and give us the word in a new spiritual light. We love them and help them's never too late to READ the word.
