My father loved God’s Word and actively shared God’s Word with our family and others.

One of my many girlhood memories is the day I watched and listened as my father talked with a young man, engaging him in a conversation that led to spiritual things. At one point in the conversation, my father turned to me and asked “Where does faith come from?” He probably assumed that I would know the answer to that question. I didn’t. But I’m sure, at that moment, I wished that I did!

My father shared Romans 10:17. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Both the young man and I heard the truth from the Scriptures that faith comes from hearing the Word of God!

Do you want your child to have faith in God? Do you want your child’s faith to grow? Be sure that your child is daily hearing the Word of God!

How can you help your child hear the Word of God? Here are a few ideas:

1. Read a Bible passage/story to your child.

2. Encourage your child to read a Bible passage/story to you.

3. Enjoy Bible study together.

4. Listen to a recording of Scripture together.

5. Have your child check you out on your Bible memory verses.

6. Sing Scripture songs together! I love this idea and have enjoyed using it over and over again with our daughters through the years. Actually, I still do!

Keep joyfully sharing God’s Word with your child! Read, listen, study, quote and sing it together! And just perhaps, you may like to ask your child the question my father asked me. She could come to appreciate the truth found in Romans 10:17 in a new way!
