Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
For the month of September, I have been centering my blog posts on inspirational, back to school quotes for your children. In this last blog for the month, I would like to focus on teaching your children to trust God.
Trusting God first starts with children understanding and accepting the critical truth that He loves them unconditionally. Unlike a parent whose love may be denied based on the child’s actions, God always loves us because He is love. Since He loves us so very much, we know that we can trust Him in everything.
On her webpage, Rachel Wojo writes about many ways to teach trust to children. She suggests taking your children to a planetarium, for example, to help them understand how big our God is and how His ways are greater than our ways. She also has a list of Bible verses to read with your children to help them build trust. She further suggests spending quality time praying with your children, and when their prayers are answered, remind them of all that God has done for them.
