Grandchildren Aren’t Just for Spoiling

From what I hear, grandchildren are God’s reward for making it through all the years of worry your children caused you. You can play with grandchildren—and give them back when it’s time for diaper changes or bedtime routines. Having grandchildren is like a mulligan from God—you can make up for some of your parenting mistakes by doing it better with them.

While you now enjoy a break from the physical work, God still has important spiritual work for you. “Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them” (Deuteronomy 4:9).

Here’s a special salute to all the grandparents who for whatever reason have to (get to) raise their grandchildren. What a gift of love! You rock!

This is also for everyone over 60—the world needs honorary gramps and grannies. With the stories you tell children, you have a fabulous opportunity to share the good news of God’s forgiving love. The offerings and gifts you give keep the Word moving in the ministries you invest in. Even from your nursing home, your prayers can reach around the globe and change lives.

The seniors who gave you extra mentoring and love when you were little are eagerly awaiting your arrival in heaven. Well done, good and faithful servant!
