Every Child Is An IndividualSeptember 13, 2017 Save Article
Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." The Hebrew word “way” is a word that is used in the Bible to mean “the bending of a bow." Have you ever seen a bow? It has a natural bend in it.
Let me give you a loose translation. Train up a child in the way that he is bent. You see, all children come into the world with a natural bent. All children are not the same.
If you are a parent, God gave you a special child. In his frame is hidden a one-of-a-kind blend of divine, innate talents and God-given spiritual gifts. It is up to you to train up that child as an individual. Your child is a rare, creative individual with the thumbprint of God upon his life. Your job is to tap into that child with the creative wisdom of God.
