"Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in His ways… thou shalt see thy children's children" (Psalm 128:1,6). "Children's children are the crown of old men" (Proverbs 17:6). "The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him" (Nahum 1:7). "Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have… Where is your faith?" (Luke 8:10,18).
We ought to make it very clear
To children, and their children too,
That they should walk in godly fear
And wisely choose what they pursue.
We choose God's pleasure or His frown
By choices that we daily make.
May children's children choose the crown
Of living life for Jesus' sake!
Let children's children now take heed,
For God extends to them His treasure.
Let fathers with their children plead
That they may live to give God pleasure.
O Lord, behold our children's choices
When faith is placed in fleeting things,
That they may turn from other voices
To choose the truth Your counsel brings.
