From infancy

From infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus  2 Timothy 3:15 

This morning in the car to school we spoke about the fear of God being the beginning of wisdom.
I explained that respecting God will make us wise in our life choices,
we had a few examples.
Then my readings this morning were surrounding being a parent,
being able to teach our children from infancy to love God.

"From infancy! If you had a godly mom that brought you into the world surrounded by faith in Jesus, stories from the Bible, and lullabies of faith, then praise God and thank her. If you didn't, then make a commitment that your children and your grandchildren will be given this head start in life. Yes, personal faith will be won in adolescence or adulthood, but beginning in infancy is such a blessing. To fill a child's world with love and hope and promise because of Jesus is the greatest gift a parent can give!

My Prayer...

Holy and attentive Father, I thank you for the incredible gift of believing parents. I pray that more of us who do believe will be active in sharing our faith with our children. Please make my family and my life a place where children and grandchildren can find it easy to believe and safe to rejoice in Jesus. In his precious name I praise and thank you. Amen."
