Last night I decided to seek out that verse in Proverbs that states, "Train a child in the way he should go. When he is old, he will not turn away from it." -Proverbs 22:6 NIV
I was really pondering what this verse meant because I have known several wonderful Christian mothers who trained their children to the best of their ability and spent a lot of time praying over them and yet their children do not serve God. I just don't understand.
As a mom, you do the best you can and you do a lot of praying for your child but the fear is still there that when they grow older they will turn away from Him. I'm going to have to give this verse a lot of thought and prayer.
