Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
 

22:6 Train up. Train up” is from a Hebrew word normally translated “dedicate” or “consecrate.” The phrase “in the way he should go” is, literally, “according to his way”—that is, the “way” intended for him by his God-given abilities and interests. Parents should seek to ascertain this in a child’s nature, and then dedicate him or her to that sacred cause, that the child when grown may make the optimum contribution to the kingdom of God.
