Children: The Greatest Gift

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

The most important job in your life will be training the children that God gifts you with. Yes. I said it. It takes priority over your job and career. The only thing that trumps it is your marriage. But marriage, i.e. the home, is the place that children were designed to be developed. One of the reasons that you have to work on your marriage is the effect that it has on your children. Observing the marriage of mom and dad is the place that God designed for children to learn what marriage is all about.


They are always watching you! Take an assessment of your marriage. What are you portraying to your kids? Are you setting an example that you would want them to repeat? Do you serve Jesus at home in a way that sets an example for your children to follow? Get real. Discuss this with your spouse and talk about changes that you need to make. Ask Jesus to help you. He will.
