“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”

--Luke 10:27

I know you want your family to be successful. Whether you’re a parent or grandparent, you want your children to be healthy, successful, and productive.

But what is true success? Jesus addressed this in Luke 10 when he was confronted by a lawyer asking, “What shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

Jesus replied with a question, “What is written in the Law?” The answer is our verse today: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”

Jesus said, “Do this, and you will live” (Luke 10:28). If you want your children to really live, a successful life comes from a strong faith.

You may be asking, “So how do I instill that faith into my children?”

It’s not as hard as society likes to pretend. You see, God wants your children to know and love Him even more than you do.

That is why He has provided you with an instruction manual, His Word. If you and I simply apply the Scriptures to our lives and homes, we will raise godly children!

IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING IN A PARTICULAR AREA AT HOME, SEE WHAT GOD’S WORD HAS TO SAY ABOUT IT.
