Train Up a Child?

Luke 10:21
Jesus said…
Then Jesus was filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit and said, "O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding the truth from those who think themselves so wise and clever, and for revealing it to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way. 22 "My Father has given me authority over everything. No one really knows the Son except the Father, and no one really knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him." 23 Then when they were alone, he turned to the disciples and said, "How privileged you are to see what you have seen. 24 I tell you, many prophets and kings have longed to see and hear what you have seen and heard, but they could not."
OK, so, wow.  Right?  Wow.  Here I am praying that my children should learn from me, and one thing I should be praying for is that I am able to learn from them!  I know that I must do my biblical duties as a parent…
"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old, he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6
… but I must never forget to appreciate the innocence and curiosity and unconditional love of a child.  The trust they show so enthusiastically…  The emotion they display with no preconceived reservations. 
My children are my teachers, and I am theirs.  What an extraordinary design the Lord has arranged!
Special blessings to all you mommies and daddies out there… your role is more important then you imagined!  God bless you all dear friends-
Amanda
