Life changed when I became a grandparent in 2010. I wondered how my grandson would remember me in years to come. I wanted to get to know this new little person, share my faith in Christ with him, and have a positive impact on his life choices as an adult.
Then there are eternal questions that every generation needs to address. That fact has not changed throughout human history. We’re all in the same boat when it comes to “what” we need to be doing. Unfortunately, there are no compelling examples in pop culture of how to be an intentional Christian grandparent.
“I will utter hidden things, things from of old—things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. …which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children.” Psalm 78:2-6
