The Hupogrammos

The hupogrammos is an ancient tool a teacher would use for writing in a box of wax. They would write a word and the students would use a stick to follow and trace what he did. Just like Jesus left us a hupogrammos to follow. Our children watch and follow what we do. Our lives are an open book for our children to read daily. We as parents need to lead by example. Children are human lie detectors and can pick up on fraud in a moment’s notice. The old antic “Do as I say and not as I do” will not work with them. If you want your children to live a life of purpose, live your life with a purpose. You need to be the example you want your children to follow. Be the best version of yourself, so they can be the best versions of themselves. Jesus gave us the best example. Follow Him and they will follow too.
