Grandparents - A Blessing From God 

Why is it that as often as you argued with Mom and Dad, you almost never disagreed with Grandpa and Grandma? Is it because you spent so much more time with Mom and Dad compared to your grandparents? Or is it because Mom and Dad knew your flaws and shortcomings while Grandpa and Grandma overlooked them.
Whatever the reason, Grandparents are very influential in the lives of your children - or least they can be. Grandparents can encourage your child to be faithful in completing school work and getting a good education. They can show the children the benefit of persevering through difficult times by reflecting on how it helped them. By spending precious time with their grandchildren, grandparents are teachers who have a long history of experiences to share.
More importantly, Grandparents can share values that last a lifetime with their grandchildren just as they did with their own children. The Apostle Paul noted this about young Timothy who would become a pastor, “I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice, and, I am persuaded, now lives in you.” Lois had faith in God and shared him with her daughter Eunice.  Eunice faithfully shared her faith with her son Timothy.  Meanwhile, Lois also had a strong influence on Timothy.  Parents and grandparents can and often do reinforce spiritual values in their children and grandchildren. Working together, they create powerful bonds with their children - some of which last for an eternity.
We are excited to have the grandparents visit Bethany on Friday. We value their positive influences on their grandchildren. We pray that God uses them as a tremendous blessing for their grandchildren and children as well!
