Don't Neglect Our Unspeakable Privilege

I love this quote from David Jeremiah - it is so true. We grandmas (and grandpas, too) know our time to influence our grandchildren (and grown children) is short, definitely too short. We absolutely are not able to neglect our unspeakable privilege in loving, nurturing, shaping and preparing the ones we love to face, and live in our world.

And our world is changing. It is significantly different than it was when we were growing up. In some ways this is much better - as true reform takes place to ensure all people, who are absolutely created equal, are able to live in this country with the same standard and treatment, our world is getting better. We are able to teach and model what it looks like to stand up, listen, and be an ally to people who have been treated with racism. We are able to show what it looks like to fully embrace this change as we love all others and stand for and with those who have been treated so badly.

Our world is also changing in regards to how it views God. We are able to stand up for the truth, teach the ones we love the "whys" - why they are able to believe in God and trust His Word with confidence. We are able to model what it looks like to walk with God and talk with Him. We are able to model what it looks like to live life as people who serve God with our all. We are able to show them what it looks like to have a faith which is real.

These things are our unspeakable privilege and we need to be certain we do not neglect it - our time to do so is short.
