Scripture for the day is Proverbs 22:15

Folly is bound up in the heart of a boy,
    but the rod of discipline drives it far away.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, our children are infinitely precious image bearers and hereditary sinners. In our churches help us to raise our children with both truths about them solidly in view, with love and firmness, with truth and tears. Amen.
