Sheryl, Austin and Kayla spent the weekend in Colorado Springs helping Miranda, Jeff and the kids move to their own home. Or should I say, watching the Body of Christ at Pikes Peak Christian Church help them move. Sheryl said that on Saturday morning, people with pickups and trailers began to arrive and in a couple of hours, everything was loaded, moved and unloaded. People continued to work at painting and cleaning and unpacking. Sheryl said it was awesome and almost overwhelming. Praise God for His Body! I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God! What a blessing it is for this Dad to have the assurance that his children are well cared for by their Christian family. I believe this is a byproduct of training them up in the way they should go.

Questions for parents to ponder

What’s the value of training up a child in the way they should go?
Does it matter if that child hides God’s word in their heart?
Is it good enough to get them to the baptistery?
Does it matter if they have the Holy Spirit in their life?
When they are given the choice to go over to a friends house for the night, what standards will guide the choices they make?
When they go off to school and have the opportunity to choose their friends, what standards will they base those choices on?
When they are left at home alone for the evening, what computer programs will they choose to access, or what TV programs will they choose to watch?
When they go on their first date, or 4th or 12th date, what standards will they make their choices by?
When they move out of the house and go off to college, what guide will they use to live their lives by?
How prepared are they?
Are they well grounded?
If so, in what?
Are any of these questions important to consider?
What can you do about it?
