Know What Matters the Most

I love this quote from Cavin Harper; founder of the Christian Grandparenting Network. This is absolutely the choice we as parents and grandparents need to understand and make. We need to hand down the faith intentionally, so the generations who follow us will know, love and serve Christ with their all.

Is there anything more important? Is there anything we could possibly want more? When we look at our life and the choices before us - especially the choices regarding what we do with the time we have - we need to absolutely see our time through the glasses of "what matters the most" and then be resolute in choosing to spend our time on "what matters the most". 

Clearly handing down the faith intentionally, so the generations who follow us will know, love and serve Christ with their all absolutely qualifies as, "what matters the most", so with this in view it is easy for us to know what we need to do with the time we have. For example, when choosing between golfing, or going out or spending time with grandchildren and grown children - what matters the most? When choosing to spend our retirement years in a warm state far from family, or choosing to stay near our family - what matters the most? When making the choice to live in a neighborhood where grandchildren are not allowed or only for short periods of the year or live where they are able to visit anytime - what matters the most?

Understand it matters the most for us to be; "Gospel-shaped parents/grandparents who serve as conduits of grace and truth for the next generations and who follow the Biblical foundations for our roles in our families, so the generations who follow us will know, love and serve Christ with their all."
