No Greater Joy

No Greater Joy
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.”  3 John 1:4
As a dad, this is a powerful verse.  It is both challenging and comforting all at the same time.
When I read this verse I hear a challenge in it as a father.  I have a responsibility of helping my kids walk in truth.  Am I doing all that I can to share faith with my children?  Am I being an appropriate example for my kids?
I also find comfort in the verse.  I can’t think of my kids and not be filled with joy.  I know that they are children of God.  They walk in truth simply because they are in God’s family.  That is joyful and comforting.
As I consider this verse today, I accept the challenge of it calling me to be a better parent, especially in regards to a life of faith.  At the same time, I am filled with joy knowing that all children are God’s children.  Let us walk in truth.
Pastor Matt
