2 Nephi 31:3

…for [the Lord God] speaketh unto men according to their language, unto their understanding.

There is a valuable teaching tool here. Our Savior teaches us where we are, not where He is. There is no way we could comprehend all that He has or knows right now. But He expects that. That’s why He teaches us to our level of understanding. 

Language doesn’t only mean English, Spanish, etc. it also means our love languages, our personality languages, our emotional languages, etc. 

To farmers He taught the gospel through farming. To fishers He taught the gospel through fishing. To techies He teaches the gospel through technology. All to the end that we can understand and follow Him. 

When we are teaching others, especially our children, we should follow His example and teach to their understanding. The Holy Ghost has a better opportunity to confirm truth when it’s received in someone’s language and understanding.
