Make An Investment:
TRAIN UP A CHILD:
If you think you are the smartest, think on.
None of us can assume that we know it all.
At the end of the day each of us is a learner, pupil.
Simply, we all begin by learning a life-style.
Hopefully, taught with proper instruction with necessary life-applications.
However, no one enjoys being disciplined.
It always seems to cause more pain than joy.
But later on, those who learn from that discipline have peace that comes from doing what is right.
Invariably, followers of Christ are interesting individuals.
With interesting impressions.
Eagerly engaged in learning more.
We all know from experience that we need to be trained by instruction and practice.
Especially to teach self-control.
But there is much more to Christian living than making the initial decision.
Let’s not leave young followers to their own devices!
Instead, let’s point someone new in the right direction.
When they are further down the road they won’t be lost.
And even then, remember, no one should assume that they know it all.
No one ought to think they are better than they really are!
Now listen up!
It’s all about giving ourselves entirely to a specific person.
Making an investment in the lives of others.
Setting a good example.
Being sincere with serious fun.
Admittedly it will never be all plain sailing.
Still, it should prove rewarding.
It will be a joint effort.
Characterized by extreme care and hard work.
Put in effect by nurture:
So let’s teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity.
To be mature is to be basic.
Christ! No more, no less.
