The theme for today’s Billy Graham daily devotional November 19 2022 is “Bridge the Gap”
Here is today’s Billy Graham daily devotional designed for your today’s spiritual refreshment. Kindly read today’s teaching by Billy Graham, meditate on the word of God and endeavor to act in accordance with them. As you start your day with God through his word, may he go before you to perfect all you have to do today.
In searching for ways to bridge the generation gap, there is no doubt that we, as parents, will have to practice what we preach, by striving more and more to bring our conduct into line with our code of beliefs.
No mother can demand that her daughter abstain from sleeping around when she herself is flirting and on occasion compromising her own moral conduct. No father, who wavers between heavy social drinking and occasional binges to the edge of alcoholism, and who can’t speak a pleasant word in the morning until he has had a cigarette, can yell incessantly at his son to get off marijuana, the route that often leads to hard drugs.
Consistency, constancy, and undeviating diligence to maintain Christian character are a must if the older generation is to command respect, or even a hearing, from the young.
Prayer for the day
Younger eyes see my errant behavior, Lord. Help me to be the right example—one which will draw them to You.
