I remember an event from the past but is still relevant today. I needed to go to town and I decided to eat dinner at a restaurant before I started home.
I remember an event from the past but is still relevant today. I needed to go to town and I decided to eat dinner at a restaurant before I started home. While I was eating, a young couple came up and sat down at the table next to mine. They looked to be in their late thirties and seemed well mannered. They also had a cute blonde haired little girl with them.
When their orders arrived, the father reached out and took hold of his wife’s hand and then the two of them tried to take hold of the little girl’s hand. She was reluctant at first but then she took their hands. She even bowed her head a little while her father prayed. The father prayed softly so I was not able to hear what they were saying but I heard the softly spoken, “Amen”.
I watched them and could tell they loved that little girl very much. When I got up to leave, I went over to their table and asked them if they were Christians and they responded with a, “yes”. I told the father that I admired what they were teaching their little daughter and I told him to keep on. God tells us in the Bible to seek the kingdom of God first, (Matthew 6:33). It also tells us to train up our children in the things of the Lord, (Psalm 78:5-7, Ephesians 6:4). See you in Church next Sunday.
