Daily Lift – April 16th, 2018

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

The proper training of our children is a Godassigned,
individual responsibility assigned
primarily to fathers that cannot be forgotten. The
Hebrews writer taught that nothing was more
important than the rearing of a child in godliness.
No reward in life was better than to have a “wise
son,” and no sorrow was bigger than to have
reared a “foolish son” (Proverbs 10:1; 15:20).

Three things come to mind in training for
life. One: The training of a child begins early
and is something that continues for a lifetime
(Proverbs 19:28). Two: Both father and mother
have a part in raising their children (1 Timothy
2:15; 5:14; 2 Timothy 1:5; Titus 2:3-5). Three:
Spend time encouraging and building children
up (Colossians 3:21; Ephesians 6:4).
