I remember quite clearly the times I spent with my paternal and maternal grandparents. One set of grandparents helped me learn to swim, fish, and taught me the importance of helping others, while the other set taught me checkers and chess, took me on trips, helped me be creative, and pointed me to Christ each time I talked to them. I lost one of my grandpas when I was in sixth grade. They’re all gone now, but when I became an adult, these amazing people became my confidants and trusted friends. They were so wise. Now, if your relationship with your grandkids is tarnished, FIX it! They need you. They value you, even though they may not admit it. Psalm 103:17, “The Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children” (NIV).
