It's Never Too Late To Lead

For their sake I dedicate Myself completely to you, in order that they, too, may be truly dedicated to You. John 17:19 (TEV)

"What do your kids see that you are committed to? What do you want them to see that you’re committed to?"

Jesus knew he wouldn’t be with the disciples forever. He knew at the Last Supper that He would be hanging on cross within a few hours.  This is what he prayed: “Now I am departing the world; I am leaving them behind and coming to You.  Holy Father, keep them and care for them ….” (John 17:11, NLT)

You’re not going to be with your children forever. Parenting is a season. It isn’t going to last forever, but it’s never too late to start leading.  

You may be a grandparent now, but you can still be a spiritual leader to those around you.

You can echo Jesus’ prayer, saying, “Father, before I depart the world, help me to impart godly truths to my children and grandchildren. Before I leave them behind and come to you, guide me to be a good steward of those you put in my care. And then I can give them back to you, knowing you have always and will always care for them.”

What do your kids see that you are committed to?  What do you want them to see that you’re committed to?
