9/12/19: 2 Corin 12:11-21; Psalm 56:1-13; Proverbs 23:6-8
Proverbs 22: 6 Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Two thoughts came to mind when I read this verse.
(1) Children may stray from God’s plan as they mature. But if parents have been faithful in teaching them God’s will for their lives they have a base that they can return to as they mature & face life’s realities.
(2) The importance of teaching God’s plan! Our hearts should ache when we think of the generations of children who have been spiritually abandoned by their parents, and as a society we see the results. But our hearts should also rejoice when we see a child through their own searching find the joy of being in God’s kingdom.
