Today I’m sharing a “Train Up a Child” coloring page. It features Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go; Even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
We must remember that this verse is a proverb, not a promise. Most parents (including me) would love a guarantee: Just feed a child vegetables, and he’ll be a healthy eater. School her well, and she’ll be successful. Teach him the Bible, and he’ll give his heart to Jesus.
But that’s not always how it plays out. Because there’s that little thing called free will that also comes into play.
We try to point them in the right direction. To live godly lives before them. And to train them up in the way they should go, all the while looking to God for the wisdom and patience and strength and endurance to raise them well.
