Passing It On

My friend Michelle accepted a challenge at church to read her Bible in a year. At the end of the year our church recognized those who completed the challenge with a certificate. As they stood in front of the church, our pastor asked each to share what reading the Bible meant to them.

I can still recall Michelle's tearful answer. The Word had blessed her immensely, but it was what it was doing in the lives of her children that meant the most. Her interest and daily commitment to the Bible had set an example before her children that resulted in their interest in the Bible.

Setting the example of reading God's Word will transcend generations. Our children may be too young right now to realize we do not have all the answers as parents, but one day they will know. It's inevitable, as adults they will face many situations that only God Almighty can handle. They need to know that prayer and God's Word are the only place to turn.

If there's one memory I want my children to have of me it is of praying and reading my Bible.

What about you?

Here is an inspiring video about the Bible.
