A family story with a good ending

A family story with a sad ending

 

Read

Numbers 11:16-17

Joshua 4:20-24

 

Talk

The elderly are an important part in modern society. They can teach us many things and should be valued, appreciated and respected.

They help us to remember what has succeeded or failed in the past. They help us assign value to things that span across generations. And they are a witness what God can do when we involve him in our lives.

·        How can we (younger people) treat the elderly as visible and valued members of God's world?

·        What do you do (or would you like to do) to pass on stories to your family as you get older?

 

Pray

Dear God, Thank you for the elderly and people of generations past. Thank you that you enabled them to teach us so much about you and your world. Help us to remember that they still have things to offer us and help me to value them. Amen

 

Bless

May the Lord bless you and take good care of you.

May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.

May the Lord look on you with favour and give you peace.
