Proverbs 22:6 (21st Century King James)
6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

King Solomon provides a piece of wisdom. Parents who take time to teach their children the correct ways to live will at some point return to what they have learned. The wisdom given by the parent is something which will return and guide them through their life.

As God’s children, God teaches us and trains us in the directions we should go. He has given us His word in scriptures so that we would know the paths of righteousness to follow. God has given us examples of those who strayed from His word so that we might know the consequences of our actions when we also stray. And once we have taken His words to heart they are always with us. There is story after story of soldiers taken captive and in their hopeless moments the words of God came back to them as reassurance He was there with them. In our desperate moments God comes and comforts us with reminders from His words. So encourage your children and pass on to them the wisdom, the love, the grace and the mercy that comes from our Lord. Pray that God would give you the wisdom and words to speak.
