The Most Important Thing - Point Them to God!

The Fall is a very busy time of year; children go to school, opportunities at church begin to kick into "high gear", children trick-or-treat or go to Fall/harvest festivals at church, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner . . . yes, it is a very busy time of year with so many things happening! It can be easy for us to become so focused on the many things we have to do; with the busyness of it all, we end up losing our focus on the things which is the most important . . . pointing children to God!

We want our grandchildren to know, love and walk with God all of their lives, but these are things they have to do for themselves. They are decisions and choices they need to make. It isn't enough for us and for their parents to know, love and walk with God. They have to make this choice for themselves.

So, as we continue through this busy time of year lets be ready to share why we love God, how we know and walk with Him and how they can do the same! As we get ready for Thanksgiving, be intentional about sharing with your grandchildren the many blessings; big and small, for which you are thankful! 

As you get ready for Christmas, enjoy the lights and decorations and fun, but be sure to point your grandchildren to God and His great Gift of Jesus! After all, we celebrate Christmas because of Jesus!

Celebrate this time of year with great joy, but in all your celebrating, don't forget the most important thing . . . point them to God!
