Train Up a Child (Proverbs 22:6)

You hold an everlasting soul:
The child lying in your arms.
You have the honor, then, to mold,
Their very life – their mind, their heart.

So cultivate a teacher’s part,
Encode the Bible in their hearts.
With family worship daily done,
In reading, prayers, and hymns sung.
Enthusiasm is your tool,
Your loves your children will love too.
And keep in mind the end looked for:
A godly servant of the Lord.
So one-on-one take time with them,
Disciple, love, and deal with sin.
You never will regret this life,
When you bring Children to the Christ.

Reason (Proverbs 29:7)

Since God is slow to judge,
He bears no threat to me,
I see no consequence,
There is no law I see,
No power but what’s mine,
Except the law of might,
The power of the sword,
And winning makes it right.
I’ll let my heart be glad,
And take those things I need,
If God had loved the weak,
He wouldn’t make them sheep.
For I may wield the rod,
It will not fall on me,
I choose what I may have,
In my sagacity.
I am forever right.
How dare you question me!
The Father wont come home,
He judges not, as me.
For I have helped the poor,
Who payed their dues to me,
I only took the wealth,
Of those who were to weak.
I wont reprove my son,
I want to hep him see,
The rod would do him hurt;
Let him then be as me.
