Josh McDowell's 7 Principles - #5 - Affection

#5 - Affection - speak and show love to our grandchildren! Tell them - often and frequently and show it with appropriate hugs and a kiss on the head or cheek. We grandmas tend to have no trouble with doing these things, but we need to be certain we leave no doubt in our grandchildren's minds when it comes to how they are loved deeply and without end. Let them hear and see/experience how much we love them - it is essential! 

Affection - our grandchildren need to know they are lovable! They need to hear us say we love them at least ten times a day and have appropriate physical expressions of love. Jesus said to, "love as I have loved you". Josh said nothing is more powerful than the love of a dad or grandpa . . . even more powerful than the love of a mother and grandma, because it is unexpected to hear a dad or grandpa say and show their love. Be sure your grandchildren hear the "unexpected" and the "expected" and do so often!
