Make a Difference in the Lives of Children

Regardless of if our "history" included living through a global pandemic, or not, we absolutely will be judged by the difference we make in the everyday lives of the children God has given to us. Whether these children are our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, neighborhood children, children from church or nieces/nephews, if God has placed them in our lives, He absolutely expects us to make a difference in their lives.

So, how do we make a difference in their lives? Consider the following . . .
  • We pray for them - and make sure they know we are praying for them. You will find a wealth of resources designed to help you do exactly this at the following link.
  • We share with them how God has shown, and continues to show, He is real in our lives.
  • We help them learn to talk with God for themselves. You will find resources to help you do this at the following link.
  • We model what it looks like to walk with God and encourage them to do the same.
  • Encourage them with Scripture when they face difficult times.
These are just a few ways we make a difference in the lives of the children we love. Be intentional. Be purposeful. Hand down the faith - history will judge us by the way we make a difference in the lives of our grandchildren/children.
