Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it. – Proverbs 22:6
As school season begins, we desire for children to have the best education possible. They are so hungry for knowledge and all new information from classes and life that seeps into their pores of education. Each one of us is a part of that education for the children. What they see and experience in connection with us becomes a part of their teaching.
Always be mindful of the little eyes and ears that are around you. Their character is built by the choices they make. The choices will reflect what they have learned from their environment. The more positive impact we can make on these young lives, the better choices they will make. Do they witness honesty, kindness, grace, help from adults around them, or do they pick up on the “me first” mentality prevalent in our society? If you have children, or don’t have children at home, you make an impact on children’s lives. They are watching.
Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for the great examples you have put in my life. I pray that I may be a positive example to children. Help me to show them your love. Amen
Faith Tip: Pray about how you can be a great example to the children. What will they learn from you?
