I have the privilege of doing a child dedication today for my friends. . . we are being really efficient, because we’re having a party for four new babies!

Anyhow, as I was praying and thinking about this last night, rather than reading a a single passage of scripture, several verses came to mind. so, I’m going to read all of the following today:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Gen 1:1 NIV)

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. (Psa 19:1-2 NIV)

21 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lam 3:21-23 NIV)

23 I gave them this command: Obey me, and I will be your God and you will be my people. Walk in all the ways I command you, that it may go well with you. (Jer 7:23 NIV)

6 These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. (Deu 6:6-7 NIV)

40 Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the LORD your God gives you for all time. (Deu 4:40 NIV)

17 But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children–

18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. (Psa 103:17-18 NIV)

15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, (1Pe 3:15 NIV)

21 Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged. (Col 3:21 NIV)

17 “Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, (Isa 65:17 NIV)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2Co 5:17 NIV)
