“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”.

Proverbs 22:6 (KJV)


If God has placed children in your care, He says to train them up in the way they should go. It means to give the child a taste of what you want him or her to become. For instance, if you want a child to love a certain food, you continue to feed the child that food in different ways, and with time, the child grows to love it and starts eating it.


You are to give the child a taste of spiritual things. From the very first day when children are born, there is a way spiritual things get to them. You should speak the scriptures to a child that you are carrying in your hands. They have a way of sensing what you are saying because it is spirit communicating to spirit. Do not say it is too early. It is never too early to begin to give children a taste of spiritual things such that when they grow up, they can make the right choices in life.


Give a taste of the direction you want your child to grow. Children often do not know how to make the right decisions. The idea of leaving them alone to themselves will not help them. Do not love your children to death. As long as they are children, they depend on you to say no to them until they learn to say no for themselves.


You must also choose for them the type of language they should speak. There are things that should not proceed from the mouth of a child. Put a stop to it the moment you notice unwholesome and perverse words coming out of their mouth. Let them know that they are royalty and must speak wholesomely.


Don’t talk down on them, and don’t let them talk down on themselves. Train them to have good self-esteem. They are children of God. Train them to know that they are blessed, not cursed.
