Grandchildren are Gifts
Scripture tells us that children are a gift from the Lord.
“Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.” (Psalm 127:3)
How we relate to our grandchildren shows God how much we appreciate these gifts.
Some of my best days are Grandma days. When grandkids come over, we can have the kind of day where we’re just waiting for it to end. Or we can look to the Lord to be kind, real, sensitive, and present with the gifts God has placed in our lives. Be the grandparent God has called you to be.
Dear Lord, I pray you give us wisdom as grandparents. Help us each time we get together with our grandchildren. God, you created these precious little ones. You know their thoughts even before any of them were formed. When we spend time with them, let every word that escapes our lips be words that would please you, God. Help us, Lord, because we love these precious ones. And thank you for these gifts. We pray this in your Son’s precious name. Amen.
