Teaching Children To Rely On The Lord's Guidance

Children are keen observers, learning from the examples set by those around them. When life throws a significant disappointment your way, it's often your child who witnesses the moment your eyes glisten with unshed tears or your head bows under the weight of the situation. They closely observe how you navigate through times of sorrow.

As they offer their heartfelt embrace and console you with words like, "Things will get better," they're attempting to provide the same comfort you've offered them countless times. In these moments, a golden opportunity arises – a chance to express gratitude for their compassion. They are demonstrating empathy, and this is precisely the juncture to draw upon a profoundly uplifting Scripture.

"Place your complete trust in the Lord, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart, rely on him to guide you in every decision you make." Proverbs 3:5 (paraphrased)

Once you witness the Lord's subtle hand moving amidst that disappointment or challenge, it becomes a moment to gently highlight to your child, "Do you see? Our Lord is at work in this situation." He undeniably is, and His workings are beyond doubt.

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

and do not rely on your own insight. Proverbs 3:5
