“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it” Proverbs 22:6
When I was a child I remember that my parents were constantly teaching us the right way to act. They did a good job of raising us and I appreciate them. But when I became an adult, I vowed to go out to do every sinful thing that I was old enough to do. However, after all of those years of teaching and training from my parents, I was no longer interested in doing the sinful things that I had set my mind to do. Be encouraged and keep raising your children in the admonition of the Lord. Though they may stray and do things that may have challenging consequences, trust and know that your training or teachings are with them. One day it will pay off. That is why is important to raise them in good and right teachings.
