Train up a child in the way he should go,
There is no greater blessing and privilege in life than that of seeing our sons and daughters grow in the wisdom and admonition of the Lord. God, their Heavenly Father, lends these precious lives to us for a season, until the time we present them back to Him. We parents are “under shepherds” with no small task before us. From their first breath until they step out to start a life of their own we are there for them. How can we rise to the occasion? Fortunately, God has not left us to figure it out on our own. He has given us the multiplied wisdom of a “great cloud of witnesses” to draw from. Some who have gone on to be with the Lord and others are our contemporaries. All of them were God seekers who learned by trial and error and have great lessons to share and wisdom to impart. There are so many wonderful books on how raise children out there and I could never list them all, however, here are a few of the most inspiring books on parenting I have come across.
And when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 [table “11” not found /]
