What is a Christian? How do we teach the next Generation?
My Great Grandma was the only Christian I knew growing up. She made an impact on me, little did I know then. I was listening to her stories and she would read the Bible to me. I went to church with her sometimes.
Old people are distinguished by grandchildren;
children take pride in their parents.
-- Proverbs 17:6 (MSG)
God, slow to get angry and huge in loyal love, forgiving iniquity and rebellion and sin; Still, never just whitewashing sin. But extending fallout of parents’ sins to children into the third, and even the fourth generation.
-- Numbers 14:18 (MSG)
Come, children, listen closely; I’ll give you a lesson in God worship.
-- Psalm 34:11 (MSG)
But mostly, show them all this by doing it yourself, incorruptible in your teaching, your words solid and sane. Then anyone who is dead set against us, when he finds nothing weird or misguided, might eventually come around.
-- Titus 2:7-8 (MSG)
