Inheritance of Faith – Share Scripture

“The objective to living is to pass on a heritage of faith to those you love and to be with them in eternity.” Dr. James Dobson

A strong foundation in the Bible is one of the most important things you can leave for your kids. We want our children to know not only the Bible, but also the God who has revealed Himself to us in its pages.

Some people think the Bible is just a book of rules telling you what you should and shouldn’t do. The Bible certainly does have some rules in it. They show us how life works best. But the Bible isn’t mainly about you and what you should be doing. The Bible is about God and what He has done.

What sometimes gets lost in the journey through the Bible is the good news of what Christ has done to save the lost. You see, when we focus on reinforcing good behavior, we miss the heart-change brought about by the gospel. Be good is not the message of the Bible. “Be saved” is.

The Bible is primarily a book that communicates God’s heart to us. It helps our children understand who God is , and we want our children to know that God is good and He is the Hero who sent His son to die for our sins. So, this week, find a time to share the Bible with your children and introduce them to the God who loves them this way: “He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
