Lay the Foundation
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Construction crews don’t wait until the building is half finished to lay the foundation. Training a child means building into his or her life early the solid base of a biblical worldview. It’s also is to let them see in you a life that stands on unshakable foundations. “Where did I go wrong?” some parents ask—even among the church-going. Perhaps the children saw little or no evidence of God’s truth, consistency with the parents’ confession or practical application of biblical values. Lay the foundation, show them what a life under Christ’s Lordship looks like, and you will experience the promise.
