Reader Opinion: To fathers and mothers

As we approach school starting and students heading back to a college, university or a trade school, I pray that the parents will make the wise decision to where they want their children to receive the quality education they deserve.

In the Bible in Psalm 139:13-14, it says that we are each fearfully and wonderfully made. In the book of James in the Bible, in James 1:17, it tells us that the gifts and talents that we are given come from our Father in Heaven. In Genesis 1:27-28, it tells us that God created man and woman to be joined together in marriage.

It is a huge responsibility to be a father and a mother for their children. Proverbs 22:6 tells us that we are to “Train up a child in the way that he or she shall go; even when he or she is old he or she will not depart from it.”

It is my prayer that all the children of the world will be able to be in a healthy home with a father and a mother who will teach their children all about Jesus Christ and bring them to a place of worship to share with others the good news of Jesus Christ. I do pray for the single parents, that God will provide the necessary tools that will help their children to know how much they are loved and others will come alongside and give guidance on the journey of parenting.

As we approach school starting and students heading back to a college, university or a trade school, I pray that the parents will make the wise decision to where they want their children to receive the quality education they deserve. The parents need to be able to afford the quality education that their children deserve. The children are our future and we must equip them with all they need to accomplish all the assignments that God has for each one of them.
