God allowed Moses’ real mom to spend a lot of time with him, teaching him about the great and mighty God who had saved him. Moses went on to become one of the greatest leaders who ever lived.
Just as He did back then, God expects parents to embrace his saving plan and treasure his word in our own lives before we try to pass it on to our kids. We see this principle in Dueteronomy 6 where God gives the adult Moses instructions for how parents should pass on the truth of his Word.
Notice how the chapter opens: “Now this is the commandment, the statutes and the rules that the LORD your God commanded me to teach you, that you may do them in the land to which you are going over, to possess it, that you may fear the LORD your God, you and your son and your son's son, by keeping all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be long.” God calls us to first, as parents, embrace his Word, fear the Lord, and obey his statutes. Our obedience to God’s Word, our embrace of the Gospel in our own lives, sets an example for our children that, God tells us here, will have an effect on their lives.
