Thoughts on Today's Verse...

From infancy! If you had a godly mom or dad who brought you into the world surrounded by faith in Jesus, stories from the Bible, and lullabies of faith, praise God and thank them. If you didn't, then make a commitment that your children and grandchildren will be given this head start in life. Yes, personal faith will be won in adolescence and adulthood, but being surrounded by faith in infancy is such a great head start. To fill a child's world with love, hope, faith, and promise because of Jesus is one of the greatest gifts 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 actively share 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.
