"The Priority of Seeking"

We are returning to the series that we had started back on Father's Day: “Teach your Children Well,” and the first thing that we want to teach them is how to love God. Deuteronomy 6: 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. 6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children…


God is not looking for some kind of cursory worship out of duty, that is devoid of feeling, passion and the emotion of love. He created us with the desire for our love because He loves us. So when we come into a relationship with Him, He commands us to love Him and love others, But what does that actually mean? How can I love God? And how can I teach my children to love God?


The Bible says in Psalm 103:7 He (God) made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel. Moses knew the ways of God and the children of Israel knew his actions.


The children of Israel wanted His hand, they wanted the bread, the quail and the water out of the Rock. But Moses sought to know God, to understand His ways, the way He works, the way that He loves, the way that He cares and guides and disciplines us as His children. Moses took his own tent and made a place of meeting, a tabernacle, for the Lord to come and meet him.


Exodus 33:9 And it came to pass, when Moses entered the tabernacle, that the pillar of cloud descended and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and the Lord talked with Moses.


When Moses entered the “tabernacle”, that was an invitation for the Lord to come and speak with him. Moses was not there for any other reason; he wasn't there to write his life story, he wasn't there to listen to worship music, he wasn't there for any other purpose except for the fact that he wanted to be visited by God and that he wanted God to speak to him. Do you have a tabernacle?


In our desire to raise our children to love and serve God, they have to know that we are open for God to speak to us. We have to let them know that He is welcome in our home and that He is listening to our conversation, and that He wants to have a conversation with us.
