I had to stop for some puppies on the highway a couple of days ago. The three pups were right in the middle of the road, completely oblivious to the dangerous threat of the traffic. One reason that they were unafraid was the fact that their mother was standing in the road also!
The Bible says, “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6).
Parents are responsible to teach their children the right ways to go, and the importance of avoiding the spiritual dangers we encounter on the highway of life. Those who heed this call to duty will be blessed. Those who don’t heed it will bring much sadness into their own lives and the lives of their children.
“He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents…”—Malachi 4:6.
