Train Up A Child In The Way He Should Go

Prov. 22:6

The Bible says “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6). To train is to prepare someone for something through learning skills. It is to instruct that person what he or she should do to achieve whatever is his desired goal. The training is not always easy as it involves rigorous teaching and instruction, and it is not a day job, rather it spans over a long period of time. Parents have these responsibilities of training the children in all aspects of life so that when they grow up, they will continue to do those things they have been taught by the parents. The training must continue until the children become mature and are able to stand on their own and are able to discern between good and evil.

Point Of Emphasis: Teach your children right from wrong.

Prayer Point: Lord, help me to teach my children how they should live useful lives.
