Text: 1 Samuel 2:22-36
Make sure that your child grows both in stature and in favour with God and man (v.26). As you raise up a child aim at both physical and spiritual aspects. As you look for physical food, also look for spiritual food. Teach your child to love God, to pray and to trust God. Jesus Christ, the true Samuel grew in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man (Luk.2:52). For a child to grow in favour with God and man, the parent or guardian must put every effort in emulating Christ our Hero! Let the child follow the parent who follows Jesus Christ.

Meditate on verse 26. What is God teaching you in this verse?

Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, help parents to raise up their
children in Your favour and that of man. Amen.
