This is a true story
A worried mom once asked a youth pastor.
“Pastor Mat, you must have seen many success stories. Some kids grow up well, others less so. What is the secret to biblical parenting?”
“There is no rocket science, really,” answered the young but learned minister.
“Do this repeatedly, over and over again.”
“What is so important that is worth repeating?” asked the curious mom.
“Check out Deuteronomy 6. Teach this as often as we could. Are you ready?
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
Tell them when they are 2. Teach them again when they turn 10. Repeat it when they are 30.”
