These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your
hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit
at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and
when you get up.
-- Deuteronomy 6:6-7
We are to begin each day with God. Every breath we take should
be a powerful reminder that our Father has granted us another day
of life to serve him. Each heartbeat is God's drumbeat of love,
reminding us that we are blessed with another minute to offer him
our best. This blessing is so easily forgotten. We best remember
these truths when we teach them and show them and live them with
and before our children. But, let's not leave their learning these
truths to our example alone. Let's find teachable moments to
explain our faith, to praise our Heavenly Father, and to teach
Almighty God, Gracious Sustainer, and Undeserved Friend, thank
you! Thank you for this breath I take and for the heartbeat that
sustains my life. Make me aware as I travel and talk and rest and
work that you are there and are worthy of my intentional best. In
the name of Jesus, my gracious sacrifice I pray. Amen.
