Proverbs 22:1 “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.”
I have the wonderful opportunity to go camping with my son and grandson on our church’s Father and Son campout. Being outdoors and taking the opportunity to teach, train and experience together the wonders of nature, allows us to show God’s beauty, grandeur, and touch.
From the smallest blade of grass, to the abundance of stars never seen from a city sky, God’s handiwork is worth pointing out every opportunity we get.
Seeing men taking the time to patiently teach, train, and mentor their sons is encouraging for the future. Today’s news may paint a bleak future to Christianity, but we need to patiently ready ourselves for the next generation.
When we take the time to invest in our youth, we are tilling the soil for God to plant good seed and press it deep in their lives. I’m proud when I see my sons and their children. Someone once said that cannot claim success as a parent until our grandchildren turn out for God.
I hope you, as a reader, take each touch with our children seriously. An angry moment can undo years of training when it destroys their trust. That name we so covet is on the line with each word, each touch.
I hope you can make today count to add to you name goodness, godliness, and a testimony worthy of praise.
