Reflection: The author of proverbs guided by the Holy Spirit has many lessons for us to learn. It’s a book rich with wise sayings for us to consider as we walk with God. This is a popular verse for parents. Fathers and parents all strive to create a solid path forward for their children. The Christian also fervently hopes and prays that their children will know the Lord as they grow up. My parents were not perfect, but they laid the foundation of faith in God in my life, ensuring that I attended church often and met other people of faith as I moved into high school. No one can guarantee a young
person’s faith but modelling our faith to children and being committed to God, Christian community and his written Word can be the best foundation for a future faith in God.
Question: What steps can I take with my children (or children in my life) to guide them on a path towards faith in God?
Prayer: Lord, thank you for your work in my life and in my faith journey. Thank you for those who laid foundations in our lives. Give me opportunities to help lay the foundation for you in someone else’s life.
We have been reading the Bible with Rick Pekan. Tomorrow we begin a new series, “A Selfie Faith”, with Melissa Lipsett.
