1/28/14 Daily Devotion

Proverbs 22:6 Train a child in the way he should go,and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Children will learn from any resource that is available. They will gather information from the television, their school, and their friends. They will learn as much information about life, its possibilities, and its purposes as possible from any avenue that crosses their path. Knowing this to be true, why are we, as parents, so hesitant to reach into their lives, striving to guide them upon the correct path? We want them to be individuals, YES. We want them to find their own paths in life, YES. We want them to have a better future than ourselves, YES. In wanting these things, we step aside or in the least back off and allow them to seek their own place within life. But in doing so, we are doing them an injustice. We have a responsibility to them to show them the path to righteousness; for if we do not, someone else will guide them down another.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me do all that I can to show the children within my life the path that leads to righteousness.
