Their roots spread wide within the soilAnd tangle with each other.
Thus, when the winter storms blow in
They support one another.
Yet even they will age, then fall,
And crumble into decay,
Leaving behind what is needed
For the young still on the way.
Rich loam to grow in and sunshine
Will set them upon their way,
And they will grow into the light
Without once going astray.
Proverbs 22:6 Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
