It was graduation time in the Ozarks. A farmer and his wife traveled to the distant campus for the commencement exercises.
They were ashamed of their clothing, but they were proud of their son who spoke with ease and eloquence during the graduation exercises, for he was brilliant.
When the son’s talk ended, the father hugged his wife as he said, “Maw, the boy is the best crop we ever grew.”
Your best crop as parents is to grow good and godly children. Ones who’ll put God above glory, love above lust, morality above money, principle above popularity, and self-control above self-indulgence.
Prayer: Help me to be, Father, all that I should be as a member of my family. Grant that today I may not grieve a loved one, disappoint a friend, disgrace Thy name, or shame myself: through Christ. Amen.
