Like children, grandchildren are blessings from the Lord, and an ‘inheritance’ for any parent or grandparent. The Bible even refers to grandkids as the crown of the elderly, clearly because it gives them so much joy.

However, there are certain responsibilities that parents and grandparents should observe for their children and grandchildren. One of these is to teach them in the way of the Lord while they are young. It is also important to point out that any bad decisions on the part of the parents or grandparents may affect the life of these children.

Indeed, having grandchildren is a great joy at an advanced or elderly age. However, these blessings from God also come with responsibilities, not just in taking care of them, but in teaching them God’s way.
