Encouraging Our Grandkids to PRACTICE Biblical Principles is One of the Ways of Leaving a Sweet Spiritual Legacy

by Kaye Swain

"Oh Grandma, would you like to listen to the song I played for my piano recital?" my granddaughter excitedly asked over the telephone. "Absolutely, honey," I replied with a big smile. Then I heard lovely piano music in my ear, with nary a mistake that I spotted. "Grandma, did you like it!" "That was GREAT, Sweetie! I can tell you really PRACTICED hard. I'm so proud of you!" 

For those of us in the Sandwich Generation, whether we are still raising our children or helping with the next generation by babysitting grandkids, PRACTICE can be a familiar word. Reminding them to practice their piano, work on practicing their multiplication tables, practice their cursive handwriting… The list goes on and on, doesn't it? And the most important thing to put into practice? Those spiritual disciplines God is teaching us. Which is why we love to encourage them to PRACTICE their Bible memory verses – like the 10 commandments – great ways for our grand kids to PRACTICE what God teaches, isn't it?

WIth all our piano practicing grandchildren these encouraging Bible verses will be easy for them to understand

 

This has been my practice: I obey your precepts. You are my portion, O LORD; I have promised to obey your words. Psalm 119:56-57 (NIV)

Isn't it a joy to work at leaving a sweet spiritual legacy in the hearts and minds of our grandchildren! :)

P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoy them very much and read each one. I also love the grand ideas so many of you share that help and encourage other readers. I do my best to reply to them all but value your patience when that isn\'t possible.
