Wisdom of the Generations

given on Sunday, September 14, 2014–a belated Grandparents’ Day

The Third Generation Crisis:

     Three generations separate today’s elementary students from a culture that centered around church and school. The Baby Boomers remember that culture, but their grandchildren have not experienced that social structure. The emphasis has shifted to a virtual community with influences beyond parental control. This reduces God’s role in our lives and we must act:

  • Stand firm in your Christian faith.
  • Spread God’s message in word and in deeds.
  • Continue modeling Christian behaviors in the family.
  • Talk to your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren about the importance of God in your life.
  • Ask them questions about their relationship with God.
  • Do all that you can to share how God is real in your life.
  • And pray that all may know God in their lives.
