Matthew 18:6 – “If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. In this study, we will examine who the little ones are, and what it means to stumble them.
Isaiah 54:13 – All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace. In this study we will examine the nature of this promise of peace and glory, from the direction of the cross-generational.
Ecclesiastes 2:21 – For a man may do his work with wisdom, knowledge and skill, and then he must leave all he owns to someone who has not worked for it. This too is meaningless and a great misfortune. In this study we will examine Solomon’s claim while looking at the legacy that he left behind.
Judges 2:10 – After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. In this study we will examine why it was so easy for the Israelites to forget the Lord, and the role of parents in ensuring that their next generation will not ever claim not to know the Lord.
1 Samuel 30:6 – David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God. In this study we will examine the King as a case study of how God is a never-depleting source of strength for us – in good times and in bad.
Ezekiel 18:20 – The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them. In this study, we will explore the concept of generational curse and look at what the Bible says about it.
Job 42:13 – And he also had seven sons and three daughters. At the end of his suffering, after having prayed for his friends, God gave him twice as much as he had before. We know that God blessed Job with exactly double the amount of cattle that he had lost, but what about his children?
Proverbs 22:6 – Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. In this study we will examine the value of teaching children the right way to go.
Ezra 8:21 – There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions. In this study we will take a curious examination at how ancient people prayed for journey safety – and on top of that, we will look at why it is important for us to pray for our little ones.
Matthew 15:27 – “Yes it is, Lord,” she said. “Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.” In this study, we will examine the astounding faith of this Canaanite woman, and at the same time, consider why Jesus was so strict with her initially.
Hosea 4:6 – my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children. In this study we will examine Hosea and the subject of holy fear of the Lord.
