Why do we have godparents? Parents may bestow the honor of being a godparent on friends and family members as a way to acknowledge and strengthen the bond of friendship. For many, especially in our society at large, the role of a godparent ends here. But for a believer, being a godparent can be much more than simply holding an esteemed position. An actively involved godparent plays an important part in the healthy development and growth of a child, and can breathe new life into what may seem to be an honorary role.
Age and adversity bring the believing elder a longing for heaven. An elder’s need to be assured with the gospel does not diminish. If anything, the need increases as the result of many unexpected, unwanted, or perplexing changes. The hope of salvation, which is the “anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast” (Heb. 6:19), can at times be the only unchanging part of life for an elder believer, the one thing that stays the same. The greatest service that can be offered to the elder is to proclaim the gospel to him or her.
With joy we awaited the coming of our little one. God is a great God. His blessings and gifts are the most perfect. We had already been blessed with four beautiful children in our early years of marriage. We had been thankful for each one and couldn’t wait to meet the new one. What will the personality of the little one be? Will it be a boy or a girl? It seems that love in the family multiplies with each additional birth.
