Following in Your Parents’ Footsteps

Granny always made the bed, folded the feather comforter in half, laid it at the end of the bed and then put a tuck in the center of the comforter. So I did too.

When the kids asked me why I did that, all I could answer was that my Granny did. Did she want to display a long gone embroidery patch? Did someone get hot toes and need that lighter space? I have no idea. I do know that I copied her just because … well, just because I did.

Is that what our faith is like? Do we go to church because Mother did? Where does our faith come from? I hope it is from a one-on-one personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

Note that this verse does not say…whoever copies Mom and Dad… has eternal life. No. This is a one-on-one personal thing between you and God.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16, NIV)

Prayer- Father God, open our eyes and our hearts to a personal relationship with You, in Christ. Amen.
