Four Critical Parts of Family Worship

What is something that parents can do to strengthen their families?

Dr. Joel Beeke explains in this video that there are a number of things that parents can do that will benefit their families. Family worship needs to be something that regularly occurs within a family. It is the underpinning of all that will be taught in the home and the Bible commands it.

There are essentially four facets of family worship: the reading of Scripture, a time of instruction from the head of the home, prayer, and singing. These four things, when done repeatedly, give parents literally thousands of opportunities to speak to your children about different things in Scripture. You will be talking with your children about what Scripture says on every subject under the sun.

Deuteronomy 6:7-8 (NKJV) - "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. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes."
