Tracks of Life

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.  Proverbs 22:6

Train tracks can be seen as a metaphor of life. The locomotive has rails to guide and keep it on course, a conductor who navigates the heavy load through turns, storms, tunnels, over bridges, as well as the darkness of night. Though rare, it is not uncommon for a train or part of its load to derail causing major delays in reaching the destination. Despite the fact that there is a disruption, the tracks are still in place which gives opportunity to clean up and continue the journey.

The same is applicable in the training of our children or young impressionable minds. If we guide and teach them in the way they should go based on a good foundation of life, God, Biblical and moral principles they will not stray far from it. The bible is the tool which is needed to develop and lay the tracks for life in which they should pass through. Sure some will stray off course however God, the conductor can pick up, dust off and place them back on the right track pointed in the precise direction.

This picture reminds me of how the Tracks of Life is a journey which can be a long and lonely expedition. However, preparation and training from Sunday School teachers, parents, educators and adults all can assist in molding and shaping lives so they cannot depart far from God’s foundation.

You may feel that your training is in vain don’t give up and don’t let go. Just as the Little Engine who thought he could so can you! It took time for the Little Engine to build up speed for pulling the heavy load so like wise don’t stop teaching. Seize every moment to develop your children so they to can stay the course of life. Stay in encouraged, keep them covered with your prayers and in time, God the Father will not allow them to stray far from the truth!
