Teaching Your Children Daily!
2 Timothy 3:10-17 New International Version
A Final Charge to Timothy 10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

“It is not for trivial reasons that we constantly treat the catechism and exhort and implore others to do the same, for we see that unfortunately many preachers and pastors are very negligent in doing so and thus despise both their office and this teaching.” - Martin Luther, The Large Catechism. Luther wrote his Small Catechism for parents to teach their children the basics of the Christian faith. You can do that, too. The dinner table is a great place for it. Do one small part at every meal. When you are done then start over. The Large Catechism expanded Luther’s teaching on the proper theological doctrine of the Law and the Gospel. We will be using parts of the Large Catechism for Lent devotions. You can read the entire document on here: https://churchofatonement.org/files/The-Large-Catechism-1.pdf
