Fear of God Devotional: Training Your Children in Family Worship

How do you train your sons to lead family worship?

Joel Beeke explains in this video that the best way to train your older children is for them to see you training your younger children. In the area of family worship, they learn from your example of faithful, regular times of family worship. One day, they will lead family worship for their own family.

He suggests that once your sons grow older, it would be wise to suggest that your sons help with part of family worship or all of it. Eventually, your sons will be leaving the home to start their new families and it is important that they start learning how they should teach and lead during times of family worship.

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