Daily Bible Reading: Proverbs 17 – 18
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 17:6 – “Children's children are the crown of old men; And the glory of children are their fathers.”
Only a grandmother or grandfather can truly appreciate this verse. Yet, we can see the depth of truth that this small thought carries.
One way to look at this verse is to see the importance of family. Grandparents adore their grandchildren – as the old joke states – “If I knew grandchildren would be so enjoyable, I would have had them first.” But, to have these adorable grandchildren parents need to raise up godly children first.
And fathers, this passage tells us that children seek to “brag” on their fathers. So, Dad, are we living so that they can? Are we raising children who will produce those godly, adorable grandchildren? It is a process.
Prayer: My Heavenly Father help me to be a part of this grand vision provided by God in this passage. A godly line will start with me – no matter what stage I am in. Amen.
