So many of us have either come to know Christ as an adult or just simply wasn't offered ( or did not accept ) sound instruction in the word of God when we were young. Seldom does a season go by when I do not lament that I did not know christ and begin to know Him through His word, much earlier in life.

Let us not make that same mistake with the young ones God has given us access to. If He warns us about causing the little ones to stumble, [ Mark 9:42 ] how much more would it please Him to cause them to be able to know Him as soon as possible. Matthew 19:14

Finally, consider this: " "If we do not show them Christ and help them learn Hiis ways, the world will surely be glad to show them their ways".
