Tend their Tender Roots so God's Word can take Root

Tender Roots

By: Shannon Cochran, 08.16.03

I notice a theme from God’s Word:
The impact on the young of who have heard.
From Moses to Samuel, Jesus to Timothy;
In wisdom and stature have grown in Thee!

From infancy these little ones were taught
By faithful mothers who God’s Word sought.
Some who had only three years to teach,
Had faithful sons that to the nations preach!

God’s truth invades a tender heart;
Fortifying the young to be set apart.
Though outside influences constantly invade;
God’s Word protects, young hearts barricade.

From infancy God’s Word can take root,
And forever affect a young tender shoot.
So fathers, mothers, keep on bended knee,
And teach tender ones God’s Word faithfully.

Teach me, Daddy and Mommy...Show me the ropes! Take me by the hand. Guide me. Protect me. Discipline me. Encourage me. Challenge me to help me grow.
I may wreck my life if I'm in the driver's seat!
What are you tending to?
