Luke 2:52. And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.

This is a scripture I have prayed for our children and grandchildren every day.  We concentrate on our children growing in knowledge but we often forget to help,them learn to apply wisdom to their knowledge.     It’s also our responsibility to help them learn how to grow in favor with God and man.  Though much they learn is by our example, we must not neglect teaching them how to learn from God’s word.  This continues as our children become adults.  They continue to watch us – how we live and relate to others.  The most important thing we can share with our children is how we relate to God.  We pray with our children, share scripture and what it says to us with our children and encourage them to have time with God.  God has no grandchildren. Each of us must come into His family through Jesus.  But we can help by showing and sharing the way.
