Train Up A Child

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

A little boy was riding around and around the block. A man asked him, “What are you doing?”
“I’m running away from home,” he said.
“But you’re just going around and around the block,” said the man.
The little boy responded, “That’s because my mom won’t let me cross the street!”

Even in the earliest ages, there can be restraint in the heart of a child because of godly training by his or her parents. The only way I ever learned to play football was on the training field. The classroom wasn’t enough. Parents must provide training and education for the lessons of life to be ingrained in their children.

Has God given you the divine responsibility of parenthood? Then, spend some time this week to train your child in one area of godly living.
