30 Jul Raising The Next Generation – 7/30/20
Adam and Edis Valenti
2 Timothy 1:5 – “I remember your sincere faith that first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and now, I am convinced, is in you also. “
The world we live in is not what God intended for us. Our kids don’t have to grow up in this world feeling alone or hopeless. As parents, we want nothing but the best for our kids. The bible tells us to teach our kids the word of God and when they grow old they will not depart from it (Proverbs 22:6).
Our kids are a wonderful gift from God. What an encouragement to Christian parents to pass on the gospel of God’s grace to each new generation of children and to teach them the things of God as he has commanded us in Deuteronomy 11:18-21.
Lord, thank you for all the little children you have blessed us with. I pray that you continue to work in my life and grow in my faith so I may raise my kids (or future kids) the way you have instructed me to. I pray for those family who do not know you yet that we may be the light to point them to you so they may raise up the new generation to be people of God. In Jesus name, Amen.
