God's Faithful Love to Our Children's Children

Have you looked at Psalm 103:8-18 lately? These verses show us such a clear picture of love, kindness and grace. They describe God as -
- Compassionate- Gracious- Slow to anger- Abounding in love- Patient- Forgiving- A compassionate Father
I'm so thankful God is all these things, and more to us! And, the promise in verse 17 encourages and gives me hope . . .
"But from everlasting to everlasting
the Lord’s love is with those who fear him,
and his righteousness with their children’s children
." (NIV)
God promises His love never ends and it is not just for me, but is also for my children's children! If your grandchildren have not yet made the choice to give their lives to God, take heart! God loves them more than anyone and He is patient, compassionate and forgiving!

I want my grandsons to know and believe this with all their hearts! This is what passing on my faith is all about - pointing my grandchildren to God! As you think about your grandchildren this week, pray they will experience God's love throughout their lives - and pass it to their children and children's children, too!

Dear God, thank You for Your amazing love which never fails. Please open the eyes of my grandchildren/children and draw their hearts to You, so they will respect and love You. Please draw my family to You throughout the generations. Thank You for Your love for us; I love You, too! Amen!
