Help Our Grandchildren Have a "Faith History" of Their Own


Our grandchildren absolutely need to hear us talk about how God has been faithful to us yesterday. They need to hear us point out how He is faithful to us today. They also need to hear us share why we believe God will be faithful to us tomorrow. They need to hear these things.

But, they also need to remember how God has been faithful to them yesterday. They need to see how God is faithful to them today. When they remember and see these things, they will be able to believe God will be faithful to them tomorrow.

These things are essential in order for them to develop their own "Faith History" and they have to have their own "Faith History", as it is not enough for them to just hear and know about our "Faith History". I spoke about this at the very first grandparenting conference where the Legacy Coalition provided the speakers. (You will find it at this link.) 

So commit to and be focused upon helping them learn to see and remember - give them their own journal or set of "faith rocks", on which they may record how and when God has been faithful to them yesterday. Help them see and celebrate how God is faithful to them today! Talk with them about why you all believe God will be faithful to you all tomorrow. This is what handing down the faith is all about; and it absolutely matters!
