Deuteronomy 31:10-13 then Moses commanded them saying at the end of every seven years at the time of the year of remission of debts at the feast of booths when all Israel comes to appear before the Lord your God at the place which He will choose you shall read the law in front of all of Israel in their hearing assemble the people the men and the women and children and the alien who is in your town so that they may hear and learn to fear the Lord your God and be careful to observe all the words of this law their children who have not known will hear and learn to fear the Lord you God as long as you live on the land which you are about to cross the Jordan to possess Shabbat Shalom again on this Shabbat day I encourage you to set it aside just take all the concerns the cares the burdens of your family your business, your finances physical health and put it aside for the next 24 hours let this be a day of rest a day of relaxation a day of receiving God’s word receiving encouragement receiving His spirit and blessing other people that’s a wonderful thing to do on a Shabbat day well we read here that once every seven years actually it was on the Shemitah year Shemitah again means the year of release when the debts were released every seven years Moses commanded Israel to gather together and to read the entire Torah that they would hear it that they would understand these principles, these basic I call them ancient paths really they’re foundational principles and especially for new people that have come that haven’t understood these things for children that are being raised up that they would come to understand the word of the Lord and the part that God really emphasized to me today it says that their children who have not known will hear and learn to fear the LORD your God I just believe that God wants us to teach his word to our children you know one habit that we promote all the time I tell people everywhere I go to speak this is a habit that you could establish in your family Jewish people have done it for years and that is just once a week have a meal together have dinner together with your family bless your wife if you’re married and then look each one of your children in the eyes and bless them prophesy over them speak what God says about them speak good things to them and if you’ve wounded them or hurt them during the week and you didn’t take opportunity to repent before this is a great time to do that that one habit is life changing and I just encourage you to read the word of God to your children that they might know and come to honor the Lord come to love the Lord with all their heart that this covenant of relationship with God would be passed down from one generation to the next, to the next, to the next this says that they read the word of God and they brought everybody the children the strangers new people so that they could hear the word of God I encourage you to do that on a regular basis at least once a week just have a habit of having a meal together repent to your children if you’ve hurt them look them in their eyes bless them, love them encourage them tell them all the good things about them tell them what the word of God says about them that they are forgiven that they are loved that they will prosper that they’ve got an incredible destiny and future ahead of them if you do that for your children you’ll never lose the hearts of your children in teenage years many many broken hearted Christian parents tell me I prayed for them and I read the word to them but somehow I lost their hearts you know what happened? they never blessed them never looked in their eyes never connected emotionally and said I love you I’m proud of you you’re a blessing to me and you know if you’ll do all of those things you’ll never lose your children so I just want to pray for children today and if you don’t have children you can think of other children that you can intercede for Father I pray for our children today and our grandchildren Father that they would be ones who love you ones who respect you and honor you who walk in your principles father I pray for the children of every person listening today that they would be blessed Father that they would hear your word that the word would take root and find good soil in the hearts of our children that our children would grow up with the word of God being strong in them in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
