Proverbs 22: 6

6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Recently, my one year old cousin has learned how to walk. I marveled as I watched him take slow, steady steps around the room. At one point, he saw an object that caught his interest. As he reached out to touch it, he stopped and looked around for his mother. When he realized that she was watching him, he slowly drew his hand back. He then waited for a few seconds and then reached out again for the object. Before he touched it, he looked for his mother again as if he was asking, ďIs it ok?Ē As I observed his actions, I began to realize that many of our young people genuinely want and need for the adults in their life to tell them where the boundaries are. The reality is that many have not experienced the safety of a loving no. Sadly, many children are standing on invisible lines yearning for someone to say I care too much for you to allow you to cross that boundary. Godís word, however, instructs that when we take the time train up a child, that child will reach the proper destination even when they stray. Like a magnet, they eventually will return to center.

Thought of the day: Have I taught a child Godís ways today?
