Psalm 78:3-4 ...things that we have heard and known about, things that our parents have told us. We will not hide them from our children. We will tell the next generation about the LORD'S power and great deeds and the miraculous things he has done.
In our busyness, sometimes we ignore what is most important--passing onto our children those things needed for them to become strong, independent persons of integrity and faith.
Do I protect too much, not allowing failure or the sweet taste of success (without my help)? Do I spend time sharing my past and live my faith, providing a solid foundations for the future? Do I encourage talents, skills and dreams or only impose my own?
Do I cripple or enable others with my attitude, choices? Do I micromanage or coach to independent thought and action?
Most of all, do I love and trust enough to let go?
Lord, help me pass on my faith to my family and others, doing so with their, not my, best interests in mind and with trust and not fear. Amen.
