Gift of Grandchildren

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- June 15, 2011

“Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.” Proverbs 17:6

There are privileges to maturing in age, and one of them is the gift of grandchildren. Like a king and queen’s crown, they are exceptionally valuable and are to be displayed proudly. You look at their hands and feet, and you pray for them to handle life prayerfully and to walk wisely with the Lord. You gaze into their innocent eyes and see glimpses of God’s glory, and you pray for them to look often to the face of Jesus and know that He loves them.

Grandchildren are gifts from God that invite love and unify families. They are reminders that the Lord is at work extending His legacy. So as you love on these little ones make sure to sow into them the Word of God, and model for them grace, love, forgiveness, and fear of the Lord. Teach them to keep their eyes on Jesus, for He will never let them down. Godly grandparents invite trusting grandchildren into their lives.

Invite them to your work, so that they can see how you relate to people with patience, encouragement, and accountability. Invite them into your home, so they soak in how you unconditionally love and respect their grandmother or grandfather. Make sure they catch you laughing out loud every time they visit with you. Call them on the phone; send them emails and birthday cards; take them on trips; buy them ice cream, clothes, and their first Bible. Make their memories with you bring a smile to their face.

Lastly, if you are a parent, honor your parents by allowing them to be in the presence of your children. Take a break from parenting and let your mom and dad spoil them. If you are a grandparent, be extremely grateful to your children for the opportunity to invest in their children. Honor your children by respecting their way of parenting. Work with them and not against them. Indeed, your children still need your time, money, and wisdom.

“But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children– with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts” (Psalm 103:17-18).

How can I support my children as they parent their children?

    I’m the owner of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to broaden my wholesale side of business. It would be great if someone at targetdomain share some guidance ! I considered that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anybody could recommend a reliable website where I can get Vape Shop B2B Leads I am currently examining creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the very best solution and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
