“When I was a child, I talked like a child; I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me”- 1 Corinthians 13:11 NIV
After my father recently released “6 Tips For Raising Godly Children: Raising Godly Children In Today’s World”, which you can read here if you haven’t done so, I felt that it was necessary to get the child’s perspective and this gave rise to this feature post “Becoming A Godly Child: 5 Key Turning Points”
I’ve been blessed with having the privilege of having my parents to be the kind of parents that they are. From a tender age they have put all efforts in giving me and my siblings the best in life and teaching us in the way of the Lord.

It is in the home that children learn right from wrong, a sense of justice, pick up habits, mannerisms, learn to read and write, learn to talk etc.

Proverbs 4:23New King James Version (NKJV)
I first became aware that in a sense there were three groups of people many years ago when I was reading one of Dr Myles Munroe’s books, Understanding Your Potential. I stumbled upon a page, the forward to the book to be precise where Dr Jerry Horner said that “people generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens.” (more…)
