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

Proverbs 22:6 is a well-known verse. It's often quoted when a child is going astray. It says, "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." I think that is a great verse, but here is the question I want to ask you, if you are a parent: Have you done your part? Have you actually trained up a child in the way they should go?

Do you understand what that means?Our job as parents is to point our children to Jesus. Listen to this, parent: if you do not take a proactive interest in your child's spiritual welfare, someone else will, and it will likely not be good.
