It was one of those jarring phone calls a pastor gets sometime. “My daughter’s in jail,” the distraught mother said. “I want you to go and talk with her!” I asked her to tell me the story. The daughter was 22 years old, and had been raised in a home with no spiritual background, no concept of Christ. “I’ve always heard if you train up a child in the way she should go it would turn out alright,” the mother said. But the problem is you can’t claim a promise unless you’ve entered God’s covenant. Jacob’s God becomes your hope only when He is your Lord.
