Psalm 78 “Telling the next generation.”

The Bible teaches that in God’s order it is the parents who have primary responsibility for teaching children the truth about God and his will (Deuteronomy 6:4–9; Ephesians 6:4). As we know from reading Deuteronomy 6, a parent is to teach their children about God during their waking hours, as they observe life, as they walk along the road, as they drive their cars. They are to put reminders of God’s law around about their houses. The Jews taking that literally put little miniature boxes with God’s law on the doorframes of their homes and even on their heads but that wasn’t what God intended. It was just a figurative example of making your house and heart a place where God’s will is being taught. This should be a deliberate strategy by parents and not something they think will happen, by itself.
