Recently I read the above quote; how true this is in our day and age! We have daily opportunities to pour God's love and His truth into the lives of our children. One powerful tool we have is the ability to read to them and with them. Creative daily devotions can lead to instructive discussions. Children's sermons are easy to use as short daily children's devotions too!
