Proverbs 22:6 - Today’s devotional

Phil Ware’s devotional (www.crosswalk.com) reminds us of the importance of being good role models for our children. As we read, mediate and pray, we should keep in mind that a plant-base diet is a powerful example of good stewardship of God’s creation by showing compassion to all creatures, and taking care of the environment and of our bodies.

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

Thoughts on today's verse: Children don't need to be taught, they need to be trained. Life is not about intellectual lessons, but about integrating truth into the fabric of our daily lives. God calls us to move our children and their training up on the list of our priorities.

Prayer: Great and Holy Counselor, help me as I seek to know the best thing to do with my children to share my love and your truth with them. I want them to know and love you even better than I do. Give me wisdom and courage to make wise decisions and tenderness to implement them in my family's life. Through Jesus I pray. Amen.
