I am no longer the things of my past...I am the daughter of the Great I AM.

Exodus 3:14
And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, 'I AM has sent me to you.'"
2 Corithians 6:18
I will be a Father to you, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.

Passing the Baton of Godly Values

I read this in a devotion by Right from the Heart, and wanted to share:

"Parenting children in the home means passing the baton of Godly values to the next generation. God's Word teaches us as parents to love God with all our heart, soul, and might, and to diligently teach the commands of God to our children when we sit in our house, when we walk by the way, when we lie down, and when we rise up. We need to teach our kids how to live as we go about everyday life; in short, our kids need to see that our faith in God is real and consistent. This calls for a lot of love for God and for our children. But when done well, the baton of Godly values is handed off to the new generation." ~ Bryant Wright

It is the prayer and goal of both Jason and myself that we are passing the baton of Godly values on to our children.  We pray that other parents are doing the same, and that collectively we raise up a godly generation.

May your day be greatly blessed,
 Kerry
