Satan has done a good job bringing down the morals of God's people and leading them to place their values on the wrong things? Today the Devil is working harder than ever to provide us with many ways to rationalize improper behavior. For those who want to live faithful Christian lives, we must diligently study so that we will not be “ignorant of his devices” (I Cor. 2:11)
* Wrong is wrong even if we didn't get caught. Let us remember that “the eyes of the Lord are in every place beholding the evil and the good” (Prov. 15:3).
* Wrong is wrong even if you do it for a good cause. The honorable purpose does not justify a dishonorable deed or action. The end never does justify the means. “All sin is a transgression of the law” (I John 3:4; 5:7).
* Wrong is wrong even if it doesn't bother your conscience. This conscience can be
trained or educated to accept wrongdoing but even an honest sin or an evil done in sincerity is sinful in the sight of God. “...whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap” (Gal. 6:7).
* Wrong is wrong even if it is commonly considered acceptable. The Bible says “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil “(Ex. 23:2). “Avoid it, pass not by it...” (Prov. 4:15).

Grandparents bestow upon their grandchildren the strength and wisdom that time and experience have given them.
Grandchildren bless their Grandparents with youthful vitality and innocence that help them to stay young at heart forever.
Together they create a chain of love linking the past with the future. The chain may lengthen but it will never part.
“But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear Him. His salvation extends to the children of those who are faithful to His covenant, of those who obey His
commandments” Psalm 103:17-18
(taken from papers written by a class of 8-year-olds)
Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of her own. They like other people's. A grandfather is a man grandmother. They wear glasses and funny underwear. They can take their teeth and gums out. Grandparents read to us and they don't skip. They don't mind if we ask for the same story over again. Everybody should try to have grandparents, especially if you don't have tele- vision, because they are the only grownups who like to spend time with us. They know we should have snack-time before bedtime, and they say prayers with us every time and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad. When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty leaves and caterpillars. Grandparents don't have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old they shouldn't play hard or run. It is good if they drive us to the store and have lots of quarters for us. (this may not sound like grandparents today, but all children need the love and care of
grandparents. This love is special).
