Encouraging Scriptures for Moms: Parenting

Whether we realize it or not, parenting involves teaching. We teach them to eat, walk, talk, and many other basic skills they need to thrive in this world.

As our children grow and mature, we teach them more abstract ideas, like how to relate to others, family values, and meaningful traditions. 

One of the best things we can teach our children is to love the Lord with all their heart. (Deuteronomy 6:5)

Here is a list of Scriptures for moms that you can use as you journey through parenthood and teach your children the beauty of God’s Word. 

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Deuteronomy 6:5-6

Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Psalm 34:11

My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity.

Proverbs 3:1-3

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
