DAY BY DAY DEAR LORD THREE THINGS I PRAY, TO SEE THEE MORE CLEARLY, LOVE THEE MORE DEARLY, FOLLOW THEE MORE NEARLY
Selected reflections from MARFAM’S DAY BY DAY WITH GOD AND FAMILY, Part 2 for individuals, families and groups.
JUNE FAMILY THEME : YOUTH MATTERS. We all recognise the importance of youth in society, as they of course hold our future in their hands. But that is quite an abstract idea. Will they be working, or social net-working, building houses, marrying, having children or shopping for the latest gadgets, apart from eating, drinking and seeking to enjoy life? Are we in our generation providing the youth with the tools they need or are they choosing and building their own? Are we listening to their hopes and dreams? Day by Day let us pray for and with them. They deserve the best we can offer for their sake and ours.
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 NIV
