Training A Child’s Heart

A little boy was riding around and around the block on his tricycle. Somebody said, “Son what are you doing?” He said, “I am running away from home.” The man said, “But you’re just going around and around the block.” The little boy said, “Yes, Momma won’t let me cross the street!” I like that.

Even when rebellion happens in the earliest ages, there is the restraint of parental training that is put in the heart of children. Today, we have a philosophy that says you don’t have to guide or discipline your children. After all, they’re all just inherently good. Just let the little rosebud unfold. The little rosebud will unfold to black your eye! You need to work and to train and to discipline.

I played football. How do you learn to play football? On the training field. You see, you can teach children what is right, and they go off to school, and somebody can teach them something else. And you say, “I don’t understand! I thought we taught him right from wrong.” Did you train your child?

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.”
