Children: Assignment 2

Explain in your own words what this means to you.

Deuteronomy 4:9-10

9Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live.  Teach them to your children and to their children after them.  10Remember the day you stood before the Lord your God at Horeb, when He said to me, “Assemble the people before Me to hear My words so that they may learn to revere Me as long as they live in the land and may teach them to their children.”

                Exodus 10:2

                2that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and   how I performed my signs among them, and that you may know that I am the Lord.”

                Exodus 12:26-27

                26 And when your children ask you, ‘What does this ceremony mean to you?’ 27then tell them, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the Lord, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when He struck down the Egyptians.’

Common Question:  Why do I need to keep doing this tradition?  It can be any tradition…

Teach history to your children.  Remind them about what brought them here.  It’s a sad state when the progressive movement encourages ignorance.  Only bad can come from ignorance.  Traditions remind us of the past as long as they are not distorted or the meaning has been changed.  When that happens the tradition is useless and it’s time to move on.  Hold on to the history of the tradition or do something else.  No one “steals” a tradition.  If it’s a tradition worth holding onto because the past behind it is sound then the tradition is sound.  If it reminds you of God and what He did, do it.  Even if no one else does.
