Keep my commandments and live, and my law as the apple of thine eye.
Many people who profess Christ as their Lord fail to see the importance of keeping His commandments as the "apple of thine eye." In fact, many can not even tell you all of the Tten Commandments much less in order. I strongly believe that many have taken the grace that was given so freely and used it as an excuse to become Spiritual Sloths!
I encourage you to train your children in His commandments by talking of them daily. Often encourage them to recall and recite them to you while doing daily activities. Write them and post them in the home so that you can keep them ever before you. A fun idea we have done in the past goes along with the next verse:
Bind them upon thy fingers write them upon the table of thine heart.
To help us write them upon the table of our hearts (memorize the Ten Commandments) we have written each commandment on paper and attached to each finger with party ribbon. The children love the color of the party ribbon and you can tie it onto their fingers and then curl it so that they can still do things with their hands. Girls especially love this as their hands are all decorated up! If you have boys just chose some fun 'boy' colors. Mine especially like green, black, and brown. Have fun while you train your children in His commandments.
Remember, Psalm 1: 1-2 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in His law doth he meditate day and night.
May you be blessed!
