Reading the card below quickly reminded me of my primary duty as a father - to tell my children about Jesus.
Jesus loves me this I know...
He gave me you to tell me so!
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.
We will not hide them from their children,
but tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord,
and his might,and the wonders that he has done...
that the next generation might know them,
the children yet unborn,and arise and tell them to their children,
so that they should set their hope in God
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up
in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
