Summary

Deuteronomy 6:4-9, the Shema in the Jewish faith, the God-breathed Word of our Lord says: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” (ESV) All of us, whether dads or moms, grandpas or grandmas, aunt & uncles, brothers & sisters in Christ (elderly and otherwise) can certainly take ownership of these words. And we can do so knowing that if God Himself declared them, He Himself will help us implement them. And whereas the OT emphasis was on keeping the law; the emphasis for us to convey and instill to our children and children’s children is upon the Keeper of the Law. His name is Jesus!
