The post yesterday from Christopher Tollefsen about homeschooling referred to the vocation of a child. Luther too said that being a child is a vocation, just as being a husband, wife, father, or mother is a calling from God. So, what is involved in the vocation of childhood? Who are the child’s neighbors whom he or she is to love and serve? What is the work entailed in childhood? How does this vocation change as the child grows from infancy through adulthood?
