Within this verse lies the goal of every Christian father and mother, to train their children in such a way that they will live according to those standards set for them all of their days. Of course, the way that Christian parents train their children is according to the Bible. As soon as we have those precious little ones the training begins. We raise them from birth all the way up until the time that they are ready to start a family of their own. If we have done our job well, they obey the Gospel of Christ and never depart from it. That is our goal as parents and it is a lofty one. It is a goal that literally requires our best.
We must have a vision of the sort of men we want our boy's to be. We should want them to be the sort of men we respect when we meet them in our daily life - men of character. There are things that we as parents must do in order to help our boys become such men. It begins with teaching them, and living ourselves, the virtues we admire.
