Do Not Give Up No Matter What

Many of our grandchildren have a full, new year of school ahead of them. Throughout this year they will learn many things; some which are true and some which are not. While we are not able to stop them from hearing things at school or from friends which are not true, we are able to teach and model the truth to them, so they are able to stand firmly grounded in the truth throughout their lives.

This, "teaching and modeling of the truth", is all about how we are teaching and modeling what it means to live a life, "of character and faith" and it is the most important thing we will do; as Billy Graham says, it is the best and greatest legacy we will ever leave the ones we love.

So, teach and model - do not give up no matter what. When difficult times come - and they will, do not give up; continue to teach and model a life grounded in the truth. When sad times come - and they will, do not give up; continue to teach and model a life grounded in the truth. When people you love turn from a life of faith - and this is something which may happen, do not give up; continue to teach and model a life grounded in the truth. When the world around you and the ones you love becomes even more contrary to the truth  - and it will, do not give up; continue to teach and model a life grounded in the truth. Come what may - teach and model - do not give up no matter what and when you do, you will be leaving the ones you love the greatest legacy you will ever be able to hand down.
