Role Models

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

The online definition of train is to teach a person a particular skill or type of behavior through practice and instruction over a period of time.

The Bible is clear about the instruction we are to give to our children.

Joshua 1:8 NASB This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

This scripture tells us that we are to meditate day and night on God’s word. It is then we will have the right answers for our children. How are we going to know how to train our children if we do not know God’s word? And how will we know God’s word if we do not read it? So in essence we will not be properly informed to teach our children. If you have questions, God has the answers. Just open His word and let Him speak to you. Then you will know the way in which to train your children according to the One who created us all. (Psalm 139:13)

James 1:5 NIV If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

This verse says if any of us lack wisdom that we are to ask God and it will be given to us. The question is what do you need wisdom for today?

Father,

Thank You that You care so much about Your children. You have provided us with all that we need. If we lack wisdom we are even to ask You and You will give it to us. Oh, how wonderful it is to be Your child, and to know that You love to give good gifts to Your children.

Today the good gift we need is Your wisdom in guiding our children. Help us to make time for You every day. Let us set a good example in everything we do, starting with our most important relationship, at Your feet. When we model Christ-like behavior then our children will have great role models to get their training from. We love You Lord and are committing our lives to Your leadership. Thank You for everything. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Isaiah 66:2 AMP “For all these things My hand has made, So all these things came into being [by and for Me],” declares the Lord. “But to this one I will look [graciously], To him who is humble and contrite in spirit, and who [reverently] trembles at My word and honors My commands.

We need to be humble and remorseful, truly repentant of our sins so that we will have His favor on our lives. Everyone is different. The Bible says to him who knows to do good and doesn’t do it to him it is sin. (James 4:17) Remember all sin separates us from God. (Isaiah 59:2) So let’s get this thing called life right and provide our children with the one thing they need above all other things, a light that points them to The Light. We, truly, want the best for our children. I declare today that finding God’s will for our lives is the best thing we can give or do for our children. Be blessed my friends.
