By the time Jesus was twelve years old, He was so well grounded in the Word that all who heard Him were amazed at His understanding. Parents and guardians can use this devotional as a resource to lead family devotions if they have a young family or to train and disciple younger children who cannot read. This daily devotional is also a tool that children can use to develop a personal time of fellowship with God as soon as they are able to read on their own. As soon as children can read for themselves, they can develop the habit of beginning each day by planting a seed from God's Word in their hearts. In obedience to Jesus' command, we as parents need to do our part faithfully to make disciples of our children, ensuring that they are rooted firmly in the Word of God. The Holy Spirit will do the rest. Jesus also said, "Here is what God's kingdom is like. A farmer scatters seed on the ground. Night and day the seed comes up and grows. It happens whether the farmer sleeps or gets up. He doesn't know how it happens. All by itself the soil produces grain. First the stalk comes up. Then the head appears. Finally, the full grain appears in the head. Before long the grain ripens. So the farmer cuts it down, because the harvest is ready." (Mark 4:26-29 NIRV). The author currently lives in Kitchener, Ontario with her husband Judah and their five children. When she is not busy mothering, Ruth likes to spend time reading, writing, and enjoying the great outdoors.
