Cast Not the Shadow

Cast Not the Shadow isn't about Shadows but Child Rearing:
Along with the glory that comes from being a parent comes also the task of shaping a child's life and pointing the child in the right direction.

When I think of the men who became presidents of this great country I think of the many mothers and fathers who undoubtedly felt a great deal of pride seeing "their president". But the question I raise is was that the result of intentional training and grooming or the result of training, liberating the child to become that which was within? An inherent danger in child rearing is the parent trying to live their life through the child, not allowing the child to enjoy their childhood; or imposing their will upon the child insisting a path not commensurate with the child's aptitude or interest.

Let's ask what is the parent(s) to do?

The first  and most important thing to do is to LOVE the child. That is the foundation upon which we build good child rearing. The next thing to do is to study the child and discern their personality. It is uniquely their own, given by God. Each personality is part of the human symphony that brings glory to God our Creator. The next step is relatively easy. We say and do those things that complement the development of that personality.

By loving the child, we give them the freedom to become their unique self.

"Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." (Proverb 22:)
