Look for How God is in Action & Tell the Stories

As I wrote in the previous post, we need to look for God; for the wonderful things He is doing in our lives and in the lives of the ones we love. Then, as Joani says in this quote, we must not forget to tell the stories of what He is doing in our lives. This is what it means to hand down the faith and it is something we absolutely are able to do.

So, stop right now and think for a minute. What is something you are able to see as God at work in your life or the lives of the ones you love? Do you know some of your family history and how God worked in the lives of the ones who came before you? For example, I know how God saved my grandparents and great grandpa from a tornado. This is something I have been sure to tell my grandsons and grown children.

The ways God works in your life - the wonderful things He does - becomes part of your family's Faith and Prayer History. This history of your family is the most important family history you will ever hand down. Record what God does, so generations to come will know, remember and be sure to keep an eye out - to look for how God is in action and tell the stories - this is handing down the faith and it matters.
