It is not a guarantee, though it is often misunderstood to be one. It is a guideline. And the best way to understand it is to hear the text from Proverbs 22:6 in a way you have never heard it before – quite literally. It may then be unrecognizable, but it will also be unmistakable. It will keep us on our toes while bringing us to our knees. It is the responsibility of each parent but also of the entire community of faith. It will find us all “keeping on.” The mission begins at home!
