Is it too soon?

When is the right time to introduce God to your kids? I don’t know when is the right time, but to me, it’s as soon as possible. Perhaps, as early as from the womb.

I know some people have been accusing me for being extreme as I’m working on introducing God into my child’s life at a very young age, but I think it’s very important for parents to instill religious values in their children at a young age. I, for one, do not want my child to grow up not knowing Him and the values He wants us to live by.

I do not think it’s wrong to tell stories from the Holy Book to my child and using it as examples in life. And I do not think it is wrong to teach the child to be God fearing and be sincere in whatever he do. Is it wrong? I don’t think it’s wrong.

Call me whatever you want. I will raise my child how I saw fit, and it is none of anyone’s business.

    Action speaks louder than words. Live Christian lives – show in all that you do – love God and love thy neighbour – what you do to the least of your brothers, you do unto Him…and love thy enemy as you love thyself…and the children will follow and that’s a lot more important than knowing the Bible by heart!

      Not easy when only 1 parent is a believer and more often than not, the boy is forced to participate in those worshiping idols and stuff. Now trying to teach praying before eat and before bedtime… soooo susah!

    Of course it’s not too early to tell a child stories from the Holy Book. No child is too young to listen to them, and you’re absolutely right about instilling religious values in their children at a young age.

    My earliest memories of these stories are from a Ladybird book. I couldn’t have been much older than 3 when my dad first read them to me. And I remember my dad teaching me this song when I was about 3: “Two little eyes to look to God, Two little ears to hear His word…” 🙂

    “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

    Yeah, if to inculcate or nurture the little one with something, it’s best to start at the very beginning and perseverance till the very end.

    It is never too early. I sang songs about Jesus to my babies and talked to them every day about God. When they were older I read stories to them while I fed them their bottle. Both of my children became Christians as children. Teach them now before the world gets hold of them.

    Hello, long time no see! I was told stories from the Bible since young. I always loved how those stories. However, the time that I truly knew God was when I was in university. So it doesn’t matter what you decide for your children, as long as prayer goes along with your decision. It makes a whole lot of difference.
