    Be wise, my son, and make my heart rejoice,
    so that I can make a reply to him who taunts me.

    Prov. 27:11.

    Each child is unique; not all children become mature at the same rate or at the same point in life. Some have a good measure of mental and emotional maturity at a young age and express a desire to get baptized.

    Others may not be ready for baptism until they are a bit older. Thus, discerning parents do not pressure their children to get baptized. Rather, they assist each child to make spiritual advancement in keeping with his or her own growth and progress.

    Parents can rejoice when a child takes to heart the thought behind today’s text. However, they should never lose sight of their goal—to have their children become Christian disciples.

    With that in mind, parents will want to consider the question, ‘Does my child have sufficient knowledge to make a dedication to God and get baptized?’
