The Value of a godly Grand-Parent

Godly grandparents are an uncommon commodity. They share the one thing that each new generation needs – advice learned through experience.

This is one reason why Proverbs 16:31 says, “The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, if it is found in the way of righteousness.”

Few parents like to be told how to raise their child, but advice asked for and advice needed is two different things.

When it comes to advice needed, godly grandparents need to do three things:

  • remind their own children about the importance of raising up their child in the footsteps of Jesus
  • remind their own children about the importance of raising up their child in the footsteps of Jesus
  • remind their own children about the importance of raising up their child in the footsteps of Jesus

Do these three things and grand will only begin to describe your value. EA

The heritage of the good man is handed down to his children’s children; and the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the upright man.” (Proverbs 13:22 – BBE)
