Telling Our Children
Scripture Psalms 78:4 We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.
Observation: Each generation seems more corrupt then the other. Immorality is all around and sin has become the norm in this society. Until we tell our children about God and how He loves them and what He has done for us they will be lost. It’s not up to ministers or pastors to tell them about their Lord, it is our responsibility to teach, show and to live a life that they can see. We are the teachers, we are the gospels that they can see each day and we are the example of God’s love. As the world crumbles around us we are the voice to our children that there is hope and that hope lies with our Lord and savior, Jesus.
Application: I need to be a better example to my children and grandchildren. My wife and I do ministries, mission trips and help others which is of God, but He calls us to be a witness to our own family. I need to take time to talk to my grandchildren about the love of God and the life we are called to live in honor to Him. If I’m going to witness to others, I need to start with my family that God has blessed me with.
Prayer: My Lord help me focus my thoughts on you and be an example to my children and grandchildren. May they be able to see your reflection in my life. Help me guide them to you and your glory. May you always be the most important person in my life and that my children would see and believe and that you will rule in theirs. I love you Lord, may that love be obvious to those you surround me with.
