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

In celebration of Mother’s day I am reminded of the bible verse, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6.  Mothers, Fathers, and anyone who has raised a child take hope that they will return to your teachings. I know that in my own life I return to the lessons of my parents often. Teach  them to be strong, kind, fierce, humble, and above all to be loving. It is never easy to raise a child. I know I was a hell spawn but I have returned to the way my parents would be proud of. Parents be gentle as your child learn their life lessons. It is not easy growing up no matter what age you are. And as you teach them be open to the teachings they will provide you.

I saw a quote from the Dalai Lama that said, “It is unrealistic to think that the future of humanity can be achieved only on the basis of prayer, what we need is to take action.” Whether the internet quoted it correctly is not the point. What the quote actually states is a very true statement. You can hope and pray for that dream (fill in the blank) but unless you attempt to attain it you will never have that (blank). While prayer is very strengthen in your faith and your personal convictions you also have to act.  It is also a good idea not to act blindly. Do the research, get insight, ask for advice before you jump at least look how deep the pool is. If we all worked towards our goals I believe the world would be a better place. What would be something you could/would work towards?
