I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. – Ephesians 1:17

Being a responsible, faithful, and spiritually wise adult isn’t easy. But here’s something we often overlook: it’s not easy being a kid either. Sure, the issues kids face are proportionate to their age. But let’s not fail to give them their proper due. Children’s issues appear every bit as daunting to them as ours do to us.

The kids that God has put in our lives, whether they’re children, grandchildren, extended family, neighbors, or students, need every bit of wisdom and guidance we can offer. But wisdom and guidance never stand alone. Our efforts to bring these to the children in our lives must be soaked in prayer. That’s when our wisdom and guidance will become more than practical, but powerful; because it is from the Holy Spirit.

I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. –  Abraham Lincoln
