Episode 63: Deuteronomy 6: Loving God with all your heart, soul & might

Did you know that the FIRST thing God says to the Israelites after giving them the ten commandments is to teach them to their children? Yep! In Deuteronomy 6, God commands us to impress His word on our children ALL.THE.TIME. But how?! Thankfully it doesn’t have to be a sermon – it can be simple!

First, we have to love the Lord with all that WE are in order to authentically teach this to the kids in our lives. Then, we get to talk about it with them in our homes, as we walk along the road, when we lie down, and when we wake!

Ready to learn more about loving God with all you’ve got? Let’s go!
