Someone with a Vested Interest in Your Child

There is someone who is deeply invested in your child’s spiritual development.  He has analyzed her personality for strengths and weaknesses.  He knows the intricacies of her relationships with family and friends and has studied every possible angle to win her over.   He has a masterful plan for influencing your child’s walk with God.

That someone is Satan the Devil. 

Right now a war is being waged for the hearts and minds of our young people (Ephesians 6).  

So ask yourself, How intentional am I regarding the spiritual development of my children?  Satan is VERY intentional.  We can’t afford not to be.
