I was recently thinking about the many track meets my husband and I attended for our sons and my grandchildren. If you are like most grandparents you too have attended many track meets. One of the many events at a track meet is the 4 x 400 relay where the runner passes the baton to the next runner and then the next runners.
When my husband and I became parents the generational baton was passed on to us. Then as we became grandparents, the baton was passed to our son and his wife. Recently my husband and I became great-grandparents the baton passed on again. On and on the baton is passed.
- How are you doing in carrying the generational spiritual baton in your leg of the race?
- Are you holding tightly to the baton or are you dropping your generational spiritual baton?
Do your grandchildren see an authenticity and sincerity about you in your relationship with God? What a blessing it would be for me to hear my grandchildren say, “I want to have a relationship with the Lord like my grandparents modeled for me.”
You can finish the race strong by modeling a Christ-life lifestyle
and intentionally praying for your grandchildren.
