Christians are to be imitators of God, as little children. This spiritual game of "Simon Says" is more than an encouragement. It's a command. As parents follow Christ, it is wise to remember that our children (and for those who are not parents - all whom we influence) are watching and imitating us as well. We'd be wise to be as Paul when he told the church to "Imitate me as I follow Christ."

A proverb is not a promise, but sometimes as believers we try to make it so. This leads to a form of prosperity gospel that exchanges an itemized "faith" for healing and wealth (a false gospel that is popular in the world) for an itemized "obedience" that seeks to make God do things for us. Parents have struggled with the proverb focused on training up a child, hoping that it is a promise. Wise words. Inspired words. They're just not guarantees.
