Don't Give Up Your Influence

As your grandchildren return to school, it is true they will be influenced again by many people - some of which may influence them in positive ways and others who do not. But, regardless of the time they spend in school and around their friends, like Wayne says, we grandparents are still in a prime position to inspire and instill faith in our grandchildren, because we do have an immense amount of love for them.

Do not think you are unable to influence and inspire your grandchildren toward a solid walk with God, because the truth is, you absolutely are -
  • Hold them up in prayer. 
  • Take every opportunity which comes along to share how God is working in your life - so they are able to see what this looks like and will be able to identify when He works in their own lives. 
  • Share with them the "whys" - why they are able to believe in God and His Word.
  • Pray blessings from God's Word over them and with them.
  • Listen to them share what is happening in their lives.
  • Pay attention to who their friends are and pray for them as well.
Do not give up your influence, because you mistakenly think you no longer have influence. You do. Hold on to the truth and focus upon leveraging your love and influence, so your grandchildren will understand the truth of who they are, where they came from and where they are going.
