Thank God for Grandparents
"I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you." 2 Timothy 1:3-7
I can't tell you how many people, when asked about a mentor in the faith, mention a grandmother or a grandfather. And this comes from people of all generations. So it doesn't mean that one generation was faithful and the next was less so. It does mean that grandparents make a huge difference in young people's lives of faith, and that they remember it as adults.
Today, let's acknowledge the work of grandparents and elders. Their faith lives on in the new generations.
Prayer: Bless my elders and my mentors in the faith, and allow me to guide others as well. Thank you, God, for grandparents. Amen.
“Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged…” Proverbs 17:6
