Do Right Till The Stars Fall

12 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valour. 13 And Gideon said unto him, oh my Lord, if the Lord be with us, why then is all this be fallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of saying, Did not the Lord bring us up from Egypt? but now the Lord hath foresaken us, and delivered us unto the hands of the Midianites. 14 And the Lord looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? Judges 6: 12-14

Israel was not following God. They did not teach the next Generation to Love and follow God. This caused a continuing cycle of sin, judgment and repentance.

To love and follow God is the center of his Law. (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) The home offers the most effective place to pass on the faith to the next generation because children learn best by example.
