Child of God
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)
Childhood is the only opportunity we have to set a future adult in the direction of the cross for a lifetime. We can influence adults to repent of sin and follow the Savior, but the foundation of one’s life is built in the classroom of childhood when faith in Jesus is easiest to exercise. If you are an adult, don’t shrink back from teaching children about the Lord and don’t think it’s too late for you to follow Him with a spirit as faithful as the child you once were.
Let’s pray that we would teach children the love of God and live that now, too.
