“The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin.” Jeremiah 1:1 NASB
Parents have a great responsibility and influence over their children. Often a child will express the same interests, ideals, habits, and lifestyle as the parents. Like his father, Hilkiah, Jeremiah was expected to be a priest. From a young age, he would have been trained in the Scriptures and to perform the tasks of a priest. Knowing God’s Word provided a strong foundation for Jeremiah to become a prophet of God.
Lord Jesus, help me as a parent to teach my children Your Word, the Bible. Help me to put into practice what Your Word says by living each day in a way that honors You.
