It’s so important to spend time with Jesus every day and to teach our kids to do the same so they are treasuring God's word in their hearts. When we spend time with Him each day, He equips us for the day and He strengthens the relationship we have with Him. Imagine having a best friend you never spent time with—very quickly, you would grow apart in your relationship if you didn’t cultivate time with her. In that same way, when we spend time with Jesus each day, our bond with Him is strengthened and we are more adequately prepared for whatever may come our way. I’ve also heard it said that if we don’t teach our children to follow and love Jesus, the world will teach them not to.
