Candle Light and Books… Perfect

“The diligent and right use of the means of grace, is a most important help for children—such as daily reading the scriptures, prayer, habits of self-examination, regular attendance on public worship. But besides all these means, the most important, perhaps, is that constant inculcation of divine truth, to which we are so plainly directed in the scriptures, “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. You shall teach them diligently to your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door-frames of your houses and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:6-9

Particular instruction of the children by themselves, and a mother’s private and individual conversation with them, are also of great import.”

Edward Bickersteth

  1. I LOVE THIS, Becky! Thank you for this wonderful quote for my commonplace book. Oh, how that is the longing and desire of my heart each day as I have the privilege of discipling these precious souls for His glory. I know you have a heart for the same which is just one reason I love you!

  2. Trisha,

    Yes, it is the Word of God, the passion we share for Him that has brought us together! I am so grateful for you!
