Prayer Pointers:

To cherish the Word of God

For wisdom to teach that Word to others

Today’s text: Deuteronomy 11:18-28

FAMILY ROAD TRIPS always included time to tell family stories—those tales of what the “ancestors” did, the challenges they faced and how they overcame them. Those stories were the most important of all, for they were how things like faith, honor, perseverance, self-respect and other important lessons were conveyed.

No less, as we journey through this world, should we teach ourselves, our children and each other the stories of “our family in Christ:” what they did and why, the challenges they faced and who helped them overcome them. Knowing these stories and living the lessons they impart will mean becoming and being the types of persons who can stand before mightier nations; forgetting these stories means that being the types of persons who wash away like sand on a beach when the tide comes in.

What stories are you living by?

May your day be grace-filled ~ Pr. Dave Brooks
