From the archives of Oral Roberts Someone once asked a Texas rancher why he had such good sheep. He replied, “We take care of the lambs.” If we are to raise our children to be strong in the Lord, we must begin when they are just young lambs. It begins at the time God places them in our care. Proverbs 22:6, Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Our calling as parents is to establish a Christian home where Christ is held up, loved, and served.
