In the future, when your son asks you, “What is the meaning of the stipulations, decrees and laws the Lord our God has commanded you?” Deuteronomy 6:20
What is your answer, when the next generation asks you why you pay attention to God’s Word? What are we telling our children of why we obey the 10 Commandments? My first thought is that if we are not—they will never ask us. If we choose not to honor those in authority or to ignore worship, we don’t even get to answer the question. But if we do, then may we learn from this passage. The answer is to tell of all the ways God has blessed us throughout history and our own lives (see vv.21-25). I pray that I will live my life in such a way that someone might ask. The world is watching us. May we give them something they would want for themselves.
