DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Parents To Educate The Children
Parents have the responsibility to educate their children. There is the formal and the informal education. The formal education is when we send a child to school or training institution; while the informal is the education we give to children at home. Both types of education are important for the child to become a success in life. The formal education has become capital intensive because the public schools in some nations have been rendered ineffective. Parents who truly want their children to receive good education have to be selective about which school they want to send their children. The expense involved in educating children is forcing thoughtful parents to limit the number of children they have. The informal education is sometimes called home-training. Both male and female children should be trained in home-keeping skills, godly traditions and culture, character training, and the fear of God.
Point of Emphasis: The education you give your children will dictate how successful they will be in the future.
Prayer Point: God, grant every parent the resources needed to educate the children.
