Bible Story time by Liberty

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”  1 Timothy 4:12

“Me and my mommy’s going to church now,” declared Liberty. Off she marched, Bible under her left arm, and baby doll (named ‘Mumma’) in her left hand. It wasn’t long before I heard constant chattering in another part of our house. Upon further investigation, I found my 3 ½ year old granddaughter settled in the sofa on our 3-season porch telling a Bible story to her dolly and singing Christmas carols to the top of her lungs.

Then it struck me of the importance of modeling good behavior: studying God’s word, citing Bible stories, and church attendance. In the past, she’d attended church with Dad, Mom, Grandpa and Nana. She sat near me another morning while I read my morning devotions.

All the more reason for me to keep my scheduled quiet time with my heavenly Father. Little eyes were watching and mimicking my every move.

A good example has more value than good advice.

Lord, help me live a godly life of faith and love and purity so those who follow what I do will grow in their maturity. – Sper

  2. So true! It’s almost as if a second chance to parent well – and I plan to grasp the opportunity whole-heartedly!

  3. FYI, the doll’s name is mumma. 🙂
