Praying for our boys.
“Thus says the LORD: ‘Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.'” (Jeremiah 9:23-24)
That my sons would not boast in fading things. That they would not boast in heart or mind, body, or possessions. That they would boast in the knowledge of the LORD — the only thing that really matters.
And not only my sons but their friends, their cousins, their generation. That they would be a generation known for how much they treasure knowing the LORD and His surpassing worth.
