Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NIV
Moses had reminded Israel of all God had done for them. And he challenged them not to turn away from God as many had done in the past. And then, in these verses, he encouraged Israel to make God’s words to them a central part of their lives. This instruction from Moses to Israel is still very appropriate for us today. Keep God’s word close to your heart and mind. Pass it on to your children. And talk about his word whenever you are together. There is never an inappropriate time to share the word of God.
