Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 6:8


6:8 Thou shalt bind them - Thou shalt give all diligence, and use all means to keep them in thy remembrance, as men often bind something upon their hands, or put it before their eyes to prevent forgetfulness of a thing which they much desire to remember.

    Thank you Jesus as you have commanded us to teach our children with your word and obey them. Help me Lord and let your Holy Spirit lead me that my Son will accept your words and obey them. I will handover my Son into your hands Jesus. You have blessed us abundantly and explosively. Praise you Lord and will worship you alone. I love you Jesus and thanks to your blood Jesus Amen hallelujah

    I think following the commandment pretrial begins with our own mother and father,how we respected them or not as well as what we saw and took away from our lives as we grew up and how we applied them,honoring our parents was a commandment of our father,if you didnt listen to them well,chances r you probably will struggle with obedience,being submissive,good thing there is prayer and help from abov
