Title: Train Up A Child
Series: Handle With Care
Author: Randy Tomko

This passage is often mistaken for a promise, when it is really a guiding principle. One that we can apply with humility, knowing that we all fall short at times.

For the follower of Jesus Christ, we can be assured that our Heavenly Father will never abandon or fail us in our parenting challenges. The Scripture assures us that He will guide us! He is there for us to turn to in our most difficult parenting moments — when we stumble and fall, and when we see our children stumble and fall.

Train up a child in the way he should go;
    even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6 (ESV)

Point your kids in the right direction—
    when they’re old they won’t be lost.

Proverbs 22:6 (MSG)
