Proverb to Ponder

22: 6 Train [a] a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Lord, I pray that you would continually reveal to Frank and I how to do this. Father, more than anything, we want to represent you and lay a foundation of trust and love that will point to you and make it very easy for Chloe to lay her her life in your hands, once that is her choice to make.

22:17 -18 Pay attention and listen to the sayings of the wise;
apply your heart to what I teach, for it is pleasing when you keep them in your heart
and have all of them ready on your lips.

I'd say this is one of the greatest benefits of reading and rereading the Proverbs. You can't help but meditate on them and have them available when they are needed.

Rachel - I saw your comment over at We are THAT family, and I just had to come say hi. I am a fellow words of affirmation girl, so I totally get the whole comment thing - it's always so wonderful to know someone is reading.

And I see you love Proverbs too - my favorite book in the Bible. There is so much wisdom there. And we have struggled with this verse too - wanting to raise our daughter the right way, and sometimes not knowing exactly how to go about that.

Very nice to meet you! :)
