Teaching Well

Scripture Portion

Deuteronomy 6.4-9

4 Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your being and with all your might. 6 And these words that I charge you today shall be upon your heart. 7 And you shall rehearse them to your sons and speak of them when you sit in your house and when you go on the way and when you lie down and when you rise. 8 And you shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as circlets between your eyes. 9 And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and in your gates.

Quote from Reading

“Our older children (Jasmine and Trey) were eleven and fourteen, respectively. I was right in the midst of the storm. This was a gut check for me. Was I on the path to being a sixty-seven-year-old pastor whose grown children looked on as I resigned from a high-demand ministry position citing my desire to ‘spend more time with my family’? Would my children be filled with resentment and regret as they wondered why I didn’t think about that when it mattered? I certainly hoped not.
“But hoping wasn’t going to make it so. I had to see myself first and foremost as Bridget’s husband, and as her partner in raising, training, and launching arrows into the next generation. And then I had to simply let the rest of the pieces fall into place.”  

Baucham, Voddie, Family Shepherds: Calling and Equipping Men to Lead Their Homes, Crossway: Wheaton, 2011, pg. 94

Provocative Language

“She was living for her family. She always sat up to ‘welcome’ you home if you were out late at night; two or three in the morning, it made no odds; you would always find that frail, pale, weary face awaiting you, like a silent accusation. Which meant of course that you couldn’t with any decency go out very often.”

Lewis, C.S., The Four Loves: An Exploration of the Nature of Love, Mariner Books: New York, 2012 edition, pg. 49
