Devotional - Sunday, November 20, 2016 325/41

Today's Scripture: "And God gave him no inheritance in it, not even enough to set his foot on. But even when Abraham had no child, He promised to give it to him for a possession, and to his descendants after him." Acts 7:5

See it.

Parent prize

Live it.

There's nothing like having children, unless it's having grandchildren. They are truly a parent's legacy and nothing brings more joy than seeing them succeed. But every person who has ever been born is an individual and must make choices, many of which take them down a different path than that of their mother and father. It's up to them to make wise choices and avoid the consequences of making bad decisions.

If there is one thing that drives me crazy, it's wasted time. I do enough of it on my own so it's understandable that I can't motivate anyone to do otherwise. I confess being critical when I see young people playing games when they could be laying a foundation for future success. At the same time, I recall having the same attitude even after I was married. After seeing my first child for the first time after her birth, something changed in me. I realized that my personal liberties, including my time, would forever be on the trading block for the sake of my family. And I willingly embrace the challenge.

Pray it.

Your grace is more than sufficient, Lord; it is creatively proficient.
