There are many reasons for us to nurture our relationships with our children and grandchildren, but one of the most important reasons is, by doing so we are able to speak into their lives and help shape their hearts. When we have a strong, healthy relationship with them, we are able to impact and influence them, and this matters.So, commit to nurture your relationships with your children and grandchildren. Commit to be a parent/grandparent who shows love, respect, concern, and grace to them at all times and in all circumstances. When you have the opportunity to spend time with them, take it, because just as when your children were young, the quantity of the time you are able to spend with them and your grandchildren does matter. The quality of the time you spend together matters, but so does the quantity of time. Time with them matters, because it is one of the ways you are able to nurture a strong relationship with the ones you love.
If you have a stressed, or broken relationship, do what it takes to heal it. Time flies and our lives are actually short - do not allow breaks in your relationships to become permanent. Take steps today to bring healing - forgive, refuse to hold a grudge or offense, and focus upon what matters the most. Healing relationships matters far more than whatever was said or done to break your relationships.
So, nurture your relationships, speak into their lives, and help shape their hearts - what could matter more?
