Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
That our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace.Psalms 144:12
It is often during this season and time of year, I think back to my first day of school and how excited I was. I can remember asking my Mother and Dad, how long are you staying. I wanted to get on with finding new friends and things to learn.
I trust our children today are still excited with the “first” day of school, with returning to school to see friends and teachers they may have not seen through the summer, and our older children, seeking challenge as they tackle the difficult courses in those chosen career of study. God is with these different ages as they seek to expand their wings and face life. God is there to help as they encounter difficult decisions and events.
Prayer: Gracious Lord give guidance to the parents and teachers who need your help for direction to our children. Help our children with knowledge and to have understanding for their lives, not only with the world things, but with the blessings which can only come from you. God also give them patience to understand some “ things” take time.
