This past Sunday, God blessed me to witness the birth of my great granddaughter! This innocent baby entered a world in which life can be unsettling and scary. No matter how disconcerting life presents itself, the one constant is God and His love. There is an enormous responsibility to protect the purity of children. God calls on His people to tell the stories to the next generation about His glorious deeds, His powers, and His mighty wonders (Psalm 74:4). We nurture our children so that they will know Him, trust Him, and obey Him. Therefore, let us foster followers of Jesus Christ who are called, chosen, and faithful.
Daddy, I Want to Know God
“I will give them a heart to know me; that I am the Lord. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.”
