All My Children


A bunch of years ago, when we lived in Colorado, I saw a great license plate, and I wanted it.  Now, I’ve got it.  Curiously, Debbie says people ask her about it all the time.  When I drive the Yukon, no one asks me about it.  No one ever has.  Hmmm…  Well, at least I have a blog where I can spew out what I’m thinking, whether you want to hear it or not.

What I really like about this scripture is pondering all its possible meanings.  Standing on its own, the meaning seems to be pretty clear:

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

Indeed, it brings me great joy to see my own children discovering Christ and choosing to follow Him.  But, in context, John is writing to Gaius and telling him what a joy it is to hear from other Christians that he (Gaius) is faithful, and continuing to walk in the truth.  Again, it is with great joy that we hear of those we have influenced in the past continuing to walk with Christ.

On a grander scale, I think it must be the greatest joy of all for God to know the we are striving to walk with Him.
