Text: Deuteronomy 6:1-9

Main Point
A sage piece of advice is as follows: Live so that your son, when people tell him that he reminds them of you, will stick out his chest, not his tongue! On this Father’s Day, we examine the blueprint the Lord gave to His people after their deliverance from bondage. For God’s redeemed people, this was a reset—a chance for families and especially fathers to rightly arrange their priorities so that future generations might enjoy the benefits. Let’s ponder three directives to make a positive impact: love your God personally; learn the truth inwardly; lead your kids diligently.

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” —Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Talk about It

  1. Discuss how your dad shaped and influenced your view of life and your view of God.
  2. If you are a father, how are you building up your spiritual life? Discuss ways men can get deeper spiritual roots in truth.
  3. Discuss how you can honor a parent as an adult.
  4. Share examples of how you’ve experienced God as your heavenly Father.
“If you build a house without a blueprint, you’ll end up with a crooked house. God’s Word is the blueprint to show us how to build our lives straight.” —Pastor Skip
