The Voice from the Other Room

A treasured heritage

I recognized the voice coming from another room as that of my father, who at the time had been dead for eight years.

Was I surprised? Not at all.

Monte and Susan, our youngest two, were listening to their grandfather’s oral autobiography, recorded before they were born.

In his story he often makes reference to the church and his involvement in it. He loved, served, and helped lead the church.

A lasting legacy

Many parents provide well for their children’s physical/intellectual/social growth, but little if anything for their spiritual.

Oh, how we need parents and grandparents who pass on to their children the brightly-burning torch of a godly example and biblical teaching (Psalm 78:5-7; 2 Timothy 1:5; 3:14-15).

Pity the child who doesn’t have this!
