Showing rather than shooting

“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 nasb

As a parent, grandparent, mentor, or friend, we can have a lasting impact on the next generation.

The children we love will be encouraged by our love.

The latest mass shootings in our own country by young men urgently call out for a presence which both forms and direct a way of respect rather than rage and revulsion to the differences in our society.

The effort we make to earn the right to be heard opens doors to teachable moments.

Let’s learn to value the importance of showing a child or teen that they are loved.

Helping a young person navigate the maze of growing up, helping him or her to find the right path, is a gift that he or she will grow to appreciate as the perspective of age sets in.

Our example will light the way for our sons and inspire our youth to treat themselves and others with rather than rage all need to learn and live with respect.
