Live So Those You Love "Catch" Your Faith

It matters for us to share with our grandchildren (and our grown children) how God has been faithful to us in the past. It matters for us to tell them how God is faithful to us today. It matters for us to share with them why we believe God will be faithful to us in the future. All of these things do matter. As grandmas (and grandpas) we are the second most influential people in the lives of our grandchildren, so we do need to speak truth and hand down the faith as we share about God's faithfulness in our lives.

But, while it matters for us to speak of God's faithfulness, we need to live a life which shows God's faithfulness. Our grandchildren (and grown children) do listen to us, but they watch us more than they listen to us. Live in a way so they will see, and most importantly want, a faith like yours. 

This quote from Henrietta Mears is so true - "Faith is caught, rather than taught." Live your faith, so those you love, "catch" it from you.
