The YIELD SIGN reminds us to pause before making decisions, practicing self-control. . . .
Find one way you can remember to pause and say a prayer in order to make good decisions. This week model ways that your children can pause, pray, and show self-control.
—Kara Lassen Oliver, Passing It On: How to Nurture Your Children’s Faith Season by Season (Upper Room Books, 2015)

Teach me your way, O LORD,
that I may walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart to revere your name.
—Psalm 86:11 (NRSV)
