Teaching Our Children (Psalm 78:1–4)

The family, throughout Scripture, is considered to be the basic channel for the moral and practical teaching of children (Dt 6:6–7). Within the home, children are to learn the praises of the Lord and his strengths and works (Ps 78:1–4), daily self-discipline (Pr 13:24; 22:15; 29:15) and the history of God’s people (Dt 6:20–25).

The family, throughout Scripture, is considered to be the basic channel for the moral and practical teaching of children (Dt 6:6–7). Within the home, children are to learn the praises of the Lord and his strengths and works (Ps 78:1–4), daily self-discipline (Pr 13:24; 22:15; 29:15) and the history of God’s people (Dt 6:20–25).

Historically, the instruction of children was to be in three basic areas:
•Religious education. Children were expected to learn the Law in order to become a kingdom of priests and a holy people (Ex 19:6).
•Occupational skills. Children learned trades in an apprentice environment and took on such responsibilities at an early age (1Sa 16:11).
•Military strategy and skills. Agility and courage were emphasized (2Sa 22:34).

Oral instruction was prevalent, with an emphasis on recitation of historical exploits, proverbs and the Torah (the first five books of the Bible). Instruction was to be daily—highly repetitive and behavior- oriented—so that lessons might be committed to memory and result in action (Dt 11:18–21; Pr 22:6; Isa 28:9–10).

Women were a vital link in teaching their own children (2Ti 1:5) and mentoring younger women (Titus 2:3–5). They were also trained in professional skills such as midwifery (Ex 1:15–21), cooking (1Sa 8:13), professional mourning (Jer 9:17–19), singing in the royal court (Ecc 2:8), poetic expression and prophecy (Ex 15:20–21).

The first mention of education in a public setting is one in which the people of God are commanded to read the covenant publicly once every seven years in the presence of all the people (Dt 31:10–13). Parents are admonished to teach with love and responsibility (Eph 6:4–7) and children to learn with an attitude of respect (Ex 20:12; Lev 19:3).

    Polish PP Girl, you do realize last year someone was murdered in their garage in Jefferson Park right?

    So now do you live in fear every time you leave your house and go to the garage?!? You don't have any reason to fear events at the Portage theater, you only have to fear your fellow citizens who are obviously stupid enough to bring guns almost anywhere in the city and resort to using them whenever some bull breaks out. Be ashamed and scared of your fellow people, not of EVENTS.
