Heartlight Daily Verse, with Phil Ware Devotionals

A thought and prayer to start your day

 

September 1
 
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
 
Thoughts on today's verse
 
Children don't need to be taught, they need to be trained. Life is not about intellectual lessons, but about integrating truth into the fabric of our daily lives. God calls us to move our children and their training up on the list of our priorities.

Prayer:
 
Great and Holy Counselor, help me as I seek to know the best thing to do with my children to share my love and your truth with them. I want them to know and love you even better than I do. Give me wisdom and courage to make wise decisions and tenderness to implement them in my family's life. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.
