Parental Sacrifices

  While returning from graduation exercises of a Christian university, my wife and I discussed some of the things we heard and observed. It was a joyful event and many congratulations were in order for the graduates.

  It became so evident that many parents had traveled many miles to view this event of their children. But behind all that have been many words of encouragement, financial sacrifices, and no telling how much else that has been done to make this day possible.

  One thing stood out with me about the entire affair. After hearing parents from many states talking about why they wanted their sons and daughters to get an education at a Christian school, we are confident that much good is being done and many are trying hard to do right by their children. We can be heartened by that and pray that these young lives will be given to the service of God.
