Teach Them Diligently

teach themTeach Them Diligently: How to Use the Scriptures in Child Rearing. By Lou Priolo

There are a plethora of resources available today aimed at assisting parents in raising their children including books, seminars, DVD’s, and conferences.  While these tools can provide some benefit in helping parents train their children, only the Word of God is completely sufficient to do so since it alone is profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness.

Following this outline from 2 Timothy 3:16, Lou Priolo describes in his book Teach Them Diligently how to bring the Word of God to bear upon children’s lives.  In doing so, he challenges parents to ensure that they know the Word sufficiently themselves and then urges them to learn how to use the Scriptures more thoroughly and effectively in child training.  Far more than telling Bible stories to children, our job as parents is to drive the truths of Scripture deep into their hearts.  If you feel ill-equipped for this task, Priolo’s book provides a wealth of practical and biblical advice to aid you in the process.
