Train Up a Child
Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
There are two directions in which a child should go—the mega and the micro. The mega-direction is towards God and His ways, and the micro is the “bent” of the child. Every parent should be pointing the child to God, and every mom and dad should be observing the child to nurture personality, talents and gifts. God’s promise is that if you lay His truth into the foundation of the child’s life, then encourage the development of the child as God has made him or her, you’ll produce a solid, consistent, unwavering, fulfilled adult.
