<em>Deuteronomy 6:5 & Matthew 22:34-40</em>
This is the key to living in God’s kingdom. When Jesus was asked to name the greatest commandment this is what He quoted from all of the Old Testament, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment” (Matt. 22:37-38). We fail our children if we only give them an intellectual knowledge of God without calling them to cherish and treasure Him with every fiber of their being.
