Train Up Your Children

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

Today our 3 year old son, Evan, would not leave the house without a Bible. He then proceeded to pretend to read it while in the van. I would like to think I have been a good influence on him and his brother. Most Sundays I have a Sunday School lesson for my boys, using the Bible App for Kids, they really enjoy it.

Kids in general are fascinated by Super Heros, such as Spider Man, Bat man, ect. These comic heros sell millions yearly at the box office and tons of merchandise you see most kids wearing. My thought is why don’t people teach kids about Jesus the real “Super Hero”? There are many fascinating stories in the Bible about his miracles he performed. If we introduce our kids to Jesus, most likely they are fascinated by him also.

Now don’t get me wrong I’m not forcing my kids to be Christians. I honestly don’t believe you can force anyone to accept Christ. Accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior is a personal decision that everyone has to come to their own conclusion. However if nobody ever teaches them about Jesus, how can they make an informed decision?

With God being removed from schools and general public, most children never even heard of Jesus. If we train up our children, to learn the Word of God and what Jesus has done for them, then they know he will never depart from them! Amen!
