Hearing the Word of God
These days my quiet times start out . . . quiet. Alone – well, with Ruth and my Brickhouse Coffee.
But as the digital clock displays 7:00 (and the magical alligators disappear from the hallway), little feet begin to creep down the stairs. Eyes accustomed to darkness, squint with the minimal light that I have on to read my Bible.
Instead of getting up even earlier just to be alone, I have decided to embrace this somewhat interrupted time. To use it to bless my children – to train them up in the way they should go.
To teach them how to have a quiet time. To answer questions they have when they read or listen to their Bible.
In Romans 10:17, the Bible says,
So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
And so, Ezra has been doing just that – hearing the Word of God.
However, Asher, Gabe, Naomi and I have also been privy to this audible reading of the Word of God. We have been listening to Matthew using my Audible App.
To help Ezra feel a sense of accomplishment and to give him a visible map, I created a very simple check off page.
I thought it just might benefit you.
How have you been teaching your child to spend time daily with God?
