Model What it Means to Live Life with God's Perspective Guiding Us

With "Lotto Fever" very much in the news the past week, there has been lots of talk about what people would do if they won more than a billion dollars. Some people have talked about buying expensive cars, or even their own island. But the thing I want the most can not be bought; not for a billion dollars or any amount of money. More than anything I want my daughter, son, daughter-in-law and grandsons to know, love and walk with God. 

There is nothing which matters more to me, but this is not something I could ever buy and it is not something I am able to "make" happen. But this does not mean there is nothing I am able to do to see the ones I love make the choice to love God.

I am able to do two things - I am able to pray and I am able to live life by God's perspective. Prayer is powerful, because by praying I am bringing my requests to the One who loves me, and the ones I love. He answers prayer.

And, by living life by God's perspective, I'm setting a godly example of what it means to be wise, to know and experience God's peace and joy and to show His love to the ones I love. So, I will pray and study God's Word to learn His perspective, so I am able to live a life which reflects His mercy, love, compassion and grace. This is what handing down the faith is all about and it matters.
