Getting To Know God…As A Child

One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the gift of knowing God through His Word. 
Jehoiada gave Joash a copy of God’s laws at the age of 7. How much could a 7 year old really do in leading a nation? Probably not much, but because of the foundation Jehoiada established with Joash in the Word, Joash did what was pleasing in the sight of the Lord during his 40 year reign. He even led the way in repairing and restoring the Temple. 

God has a plan for the next generation. He wants them to lead well and grow in their relationship with Him. May God give us grace and wisdom to help the next generation to know Him through HIs Word even and especially at a young age.
