Daily Devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries

You shall teach them (My words) to your children… when you lie down, and when you rise. Deuteronomy 11:19

The people who live around St. Louis aren’t the richest in the world.

Even so, it appears the tooth fairies that visit some St. Louis homes are doing pretty good.

Recently a kindergartner lost a tooth. He put it under his pillow. The next day the tooth was gone, having been replaced by a fifty-dollar bill. You heard right: fifty bucks. My poor math says that if a child has twenty baby teeth, he or she is going to be able to salt away a clean grand.

That’s pretty good pay for some minimal work.

Now I’m not going to go on a tirade about inflation or values. Instead, it is my prayer that those parents will conscientiously teach the importance of the Savior as well as they are the worth of a lost tooth.

How does Deuteronomy say it? Parents should be teaching about the Lord and the Savior when they lay down and when they get up.
Christ is a lesson our children need to know.

THE PRAYER: Dear Lord, grant parents the willingness to teach their children those things that are really important; let them teach the Savior. In His Name. Amen.

In Christ I remain His servant and yours,

Pastor Ken Klaus
