Little exhortations from dads to sons

It’s Monday morning again, and I’ve just spent an hour of my day-off writing letters – by hand – to my two oldest kids away at college. And on top of that, I have been texting them each day with a verse from my devotional reading of the Scriptures! Today’s verse was from 1st Chronicles 28….

Just before King David’s great prayer of 1st Chronicles 29, there is this little exhortation, from father to son, at the end of chapter 28:

Dad & Drew

Dad & Drew

Then David said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished.” (28:20, esv)

I think it is an excellent idea to be reminding our kids of the truth of Scripture — that our Lord God is with them wherever they go, and that He will help them do what He calls them to do.

Is there someone you should write too?
