Why is teaching the Bible so important?
1) Parents are commanded to teach their children
2) Children are our enemy’s great catch.
A country preacher put it this way after spending a vacation with a Scottish sheepherder. Noticing one day that the herder was uncommonly quiet, Dr. Riley asked him why. The herder replied, “I lost 65 of my best lambs last night. Wolves got in.” Dr. Riley then asked how many of the older sheep were killed. The herder looked at him in surprise and said, “Don’t you know that a wolf will never take an old sheep as long as he can get a lamb?”
This finely illustrates the devil’s clever effort to get our young people into his clutches. Let’s do our part to teach and impart the truth of God’s Word into these precious children!
