Good morning everyone and welcome to the table for a bite of a Monday message to start your week! My Son is getting ready to move out on his own very soon. This makes me think of a particular verse in the Bible…
Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (ESV)
We often think of this verse when our kids move to the stage of life of moving out and moving on. But it also makes me think of something else.
Notice this verse says train up “A” child, not just “YOUR” child. We may have influence on a child that is not our own. This is also a time to be training in small moments. Maybe you spend a significant amount of time with a child, teach them about Jesus. Help them understand scripture. Be a Godly example for a child in your life. Help train up “A” child for God’s kingdom.
Be blessed and be a blessing today friends! See ya soon 🙂
