|826||FAMILY LIFE||Deuteronomy 6 and Ephesians 6, NIV|
Love the Lord your God|
with all your heart
and with all your soul
and with all your strength.
These commandments that I give you today
are to be upon your hearts.
Impress them on your children.
Talk about them when you sit at home
and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord,
for this is right.
"Honor your father and mother"
which is the first commandment with a promise
"that it may go well with you
and that you may enjoy long life on the earth."
Fathers, do not exasperate your children;
instead, bring them up in the training
and instruction of the Lord.
