Reading: Proverbs 22: 6
You may remember the TV show, "The Waltons." It was a show about a large family and how they dealt with everyday life on their mountain. It was a good show and stressed family values.
John-Boy was the oldest child of the family. He was the role model for his younger siblings. He grew up and became a writer. He turned out pretty well.
I think that was because he was raised well by his parents. He was trained in the way he should go. When he was older, he did not depart from it. He was given the proper foundation to be a good member of society.
I think everyone should be "the village" that raises children. We should remember this verse as we have encounters with the young.
Good night, John-Boy, wherever you are! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Discuss or meditate on this quote by Henry Ford, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right."
