The words "start off" or "train up" in Proverbs 22:6 communicates the idea of dedicating a child or even an adult to God's purposes. This verse is a guideline rather than a prescription. Believers teach by example, by modeling what it means to follow God. Young people will emulate their parents and the adults around them. Believers have a responsibility to grow in their Christian faith so they can effectively model the principles included in the acronym H.A.B.I.T.S.
