There is Just One Version of Your Grandchildren

Take a moment, right now, to think about each of your grandchildren. Think about how they may be similar to one another. Think about the ways in which they are unique. I wrote yesterday about how each of the people in your life are there for a purpose - they are Divine Appointments. Today I want to write about how these "Divine Appointments" are unique, special, incredible creations of God - He, "made one version" of them. Just as God has a purpose for you; He has a purpose for each of them.

Part of what we do as we hand down the faith is to most surely point the ones we love to a faith of their own in Jesus. But, part of it is also helping them see, understand and believe how God knew what He was doing when He created them and He has a glorious purpose for them. He only made one of them - there is no other person on Earth who is just like them or who is able to do exactly what God created them to do. When they discover God's plan for their lives, your grandchildren will be able to live life with joy and purpose.

So, share your experiences in discovering God's purpose for your own life. Be sure they know some of the "picture" of the how and why God created you to be a unique, one-of-a-kind person. Encourage them to discover God's purpose for them and make it a point of prayer.

As Max Lucado said; "Da Vinci painted one Mona Lisa. Beethoven composed one Fifth Symphony. And God made one version of" each of your grandchildren. They are unique, special, incredible, glorious creations and they have an amazing purpose awaiting their discovery!
