 Do you teach him: a) to love Hashem, or b) not to take bones out of a fish on Shabbos?

To me the answer was obviously "not to take bones out of a fish on Shabbos."
Here's why. We are more into DEED than CREED. One might argue that to love 
Hashem is also "deed" but I would argue that it is peripherally "deed" whereas the 
"not taking bones out" is overt action and can be seen. To love Hashem is more 
of a recondite concept.
