And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love....1Cor 13:13

I can train my children to believe the right doctrine and attend church. I can train them to be obedient the first time and always comply. I can carefully teach them at home and never expose them to all the world has to offer, but if I fail to teach and train them to pray and cultivate relationship with Him then I have failed completely. If I don't teach them to love Him and others then they will just be self righteous hypocrites.
Justice and mercy and faithfulness; these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! Matt 23
