• “Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off your relish of spiritual things; in short, whatever increases the strength and authority of your body over your mind, that thing is sin to you.” – Susanna Wesley

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Are you teaching your kids who God really is?

In Genesis 28 Isaac is at the end of his life and tells his son, “May God Almighty [or El Shaddai] bless you.”

Now, El Shaddai was the name that God revealed when Isaac was miraculously born to his elderly parents. Abraham and Sarah had obviously taught Isaac about El Shaddai as he was growing up, and now Isaac was teaching the name to his son.

There are so many ways you can pass on the knowledge of God asEl Shaddai—God Almighty—to your children. When a paycheck comes in or you leave for work, you can remind them that, ultimately, everything comes from God.

When you pray as a family, you can tell your kids about the way God answers prayer. And as He reveals Himself to you through the Word, you can pass along that truth, just as Abraham did to his son.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
