Wisdom From The World

“No matter how far we come, our parents are always with us.” – Brad Meltzer
Wisdom From The Word

“God, slow to get angry and huge in loyal love, forgiving iniquity and rebellion and sin; still never whitewashing sin. But extending the fallout of parents’ sin to children into the third, even the fourth generation. “ – Numbers 14:18 The Message
Keep Me Real Lord!
Thank you Lord for the children/grandchildren in my life. Help me to remember that my choices, my attitudes and my lack of self-awareness and growth is imprinting their subconscious minds. Help me to be constantly focused on you and how you love so that I can love the little ones in my life in a way that encourages them to become the person you designed them to be. Make me aware of the consequences when I walk away from personal growth.
