How can children learn to love God?
Your children can learn to love God only if they have evidence that he exists and that he loves them. To love God, they need to know him. (1 John 4:8) For example, they need to know: What was God’s purpose for creating man? Why does God allow suffering? What will God do for mankind in the future?
To help your children to love God, you must show them that you love him yourself. When they see that, they will likely follow your example.
