Teach Them When They’re Young

When you’re on the road as much as we are, it’s always fun to hear good news from home. The other day, our daughter-in-law, Elisabeth, wrote us the following message about our grandson, Samuel, who is just one year old:

“Sometimes while I’m feeding Samuel before bed I tell him the story of creation. (I say sometimes b’c I definitely don’t do it every night.)  We usually make it fun and do animal sounds when it comes to day 5&6….he gets very excited when I mention animals that he knows.  Last night when I got to day five, I only said, “And on the FIFTH DAY…..” and before I could say anything else he looked up smiled real big and started doing his fish face!!!  I hadn’t told him the creation story in quite a few days, but he KNEW what God made on Day 5!!  I was so excited I had to tell you guys!!…. he’s a pretty smart cookie and remembers a lot of things!  :)”

Well, of course, he’s pretty smart – he’s our grandson! (Grandparents are allowed to be a bit prejudiced, aren’t they?! :) Seriously, we are blessed  to have a daughter-in-law who is teaching our grandson the truth of God’s Word from a very young age. I wonder how many of the “educated” university students we have been teaching this past couple weeks know what God did on day 5 of Creation Week.
