Pr 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
Time seems to fly by faster as we get older. When we are young we think we have all the time in the world and will be able to spend more quality time with our families as we get older. If we are not careful before we know it something unexpected happens, the children are all grown up and out of the house.
We can't get that time back to teach them the things we always meant to teach them. We can't go back and share the experiences with them once they are grown and gone. It is important for us to make time for them when they need us most.
No matter what we give them materially it will never be as great a gift as the time we spend training them up to be good Christians and good citizens. Give your whole family the gift of your time and attention. Don't just give it around Christmas but give it all year long.
