Up near my hometown of Ducktown, Tennessee, there was a plant that put out all kinds of harsh chemicals and because of this, the landscape was devastated.
The place looked like Mars, it was all red dirt. The trees and vegetation were gone in a certain area. The plant stopped, but the damage was done. It looked like a bad situation, but the locals began planting trees. My parents planted some as part of a high school project. It wasn’t fixed overnight, but those seeds took and trees grew.
Seeds don’t sprout up overnight, but they need to be planted. Did you know parenting is all about planting seeds? The seed of God’s Word, that is. It takes a lot of work, but if you are faithful you will see the result.

TIPS FOR RAISING A GODLY SEED
THE TAKE AWAY
Stay consistent in teaching your child God’s Word. Make it a daily habit. It doesn’t have to be something scholarly, just bring God’s Word into your everyday living in front of your child. Show your child by example how to put God’s Word first in their life.
