Hi 'Seun,

Growing up, you would be taught in the way of the Lord.

Treasure it.

The knowledge of God as Father. Knowing that His character is good and  dependable as seen in Christ. Never let it go. 

James 1:17 (AMP) Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of lights [the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens], in whom there is no variation [no rising or setting] or shadow [d]cast by His turning [for He is perfect and never changes]. 

Keep these truths before your face. You'll need them in this world you're growing into.

And those early attitudes.

Reading your King James Version Bible, and the English seems like Greek. Yet reading it everyday.

Continue, that attitude is as important as the action.

You'd come to learn that the most important things in the faith are the basic things.

Having a heart for Je is not weird, do not be ashamed of your faith.

Never hide your Bible in pocket.

When you get to the university, disciple more folks. Create time for many more. This is the crux of the faith.

Your attitude to always know Jesus Christ for your self. Keep it up.

And never forget this lesson.

Faith is better than sight.

      @keni It ought to be Keni.
      I'd be writing more later and i might even assemble others writings of it and release it in a book form, with their full consent and reference of course. The least expensive thing each generation can pass down is wisdom and we must start early.

      @seunoyebode - Interesting idea.
      I should task my dad to do this as well. Can you image if we had generations of books with this topic passed down to us as we come of age?

      Make it happen!
