Instilling A Foundation Of Values

Quote Logo

Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.

  1. This is so very true Steve, boy has this scripture ever been engraved on my heart! It may not seem like it at the time, but we are given only a very small window of opportunity to instill these values into our children. The days when they are young and very much with us are gone like a dream and then, and only then, when we let them go out into the world can we hope and pray that we have done all that we could have done, in the Lord’s strength and wisdom, to give them this foundation. Then we keep on praying as they make their own decisions and choices…and we love them no matter what πŸ™‚

  2. Actually, I mistakenly said scripture, but I realise it’s a quote from the incomparable James Dobson. I have a calendar from Focus on the Family with one of his quotes for each day which I use perpetually all year long, year in, year out, and this one particularly has always really spoken to me. So yes, it is engraved on my heart!!

  3. For me, it’s privilege and an honor to be a parent. The most important thing I do πŸ™‚

  4. Amen! They are truly a treasure from the LORD. πŸ™‚

Any thoughts? I'd love to hear from you!
