As an introduction to our study in Proverbs 3 next week, spend some time reading Deuteronomy 6 this weekend. This may take you a bit of time, so please take your time!
Here are a few thought questions for you as you read. You may put them in your journal:
1) Why did God give the commandments to Moses (who is the writer of this passage.) See verses 1-2
2) and if you listen to these teachings, what will be the benefit? See verse 3.
3)Verse 5 is a very commonly quoted verse. I ask you....Do you?
4)Verses 6-9 are always a wake up call for me. I am not diligent enough when teaching God's Word to myself, much less the rest of my family. More on this in a moment...
There are so many more things to learn in this passage but I am going to stop here as this pertains to our lesson on Monday. Feel free to read the rest of Deuteronomy 6 though, as there is much to learn in this short chapter of 25 verses.
Today for our discussion, I would like to ask you all for ideas. In ancient Bible times, the young men truly did keep the Scriptures in a little box attached to their wrist or their forehead. What ideas do you have to put the Word of God in plain view for your family?
