I drove five hours to my daughter’s house to surprise her for her twenty-fifth birthday. I arrived before she came home, so I had time to hang a birthday banner and put some flowers on the table.
As I was straightening the pillows on the couch, I noticed a piece of paper taped to my daughter’s bookshelf. On it was written, “Don’t worry about anything. But pray and ask God for everything you need. And when you pray, always give thanks” (Philippians 4:6). I smiled as I read the verse. That was the verse I repeated when I was baptized. I was happy to know that my daughter was depending on God to help her every day.
Psalm 102 talks about teaching future generations about God. “Write these things for the future generation. And in the future, those people will praise the Lord” (verse 18). Be sure that you teach your children and grandchildren about God and His plan for their lives.
