They wanted fame, but they achieved infamy. They had learned how to destroy life, but had not learned what life is all about. Our children and grandchil- dren deserve to be informed about the whole truth. We are creatures made in the image of God and by His own "hands." We were created for one pur- pose and that is to know Him, to love and serve Him. Our children are our her- itage from the Lord and we have the responsibility to train them in the way they should go (Psalm 127:3; Proverbs 22:6). If we give our children the very best education our schools can provide and withhold from them the truth about their need for a personal relationship with God, what advantage will their education be? If they obtain the knowledge to "make their for- tune" in this world, and do not have assurance of an eternal home in heaven, what will that knowledge be worth? Because we are made of God's own hand, we are creat- ed with a spiritual vacuum that only God can fill. There is a heart hunger in our land today. People are becoming aware that there is more to life than acquiring property and earn- ing. money. Our young people are searching for something that will give meaning to life. They are weary of the fear and the possibility of violence they face daily. When they are willing to turn to God and when we become the responsible Christians we should be to instruct them, God is willing to "hear from heaven, and will for- give (our) sins and heal (our) land." May that be what the New Year brings. How desper- ately we need it! What can you do as a par- ent or grandparent? Start by attending your church's Sunday Bible Study and take your children and grandchil- dren with you. Don't just go when it is convenient. Go reg- ularly. The Lord's Day comes once a week! Then spend some time with the Lord in Bible study and prayer daily. If you give Him the opportunity, He will make Himself and His blessings known to you. Then the New Year can really bring you the best that life has to offer. Baptist Church By Jane Gottshall hands. They miss the impor- tance of real life which is the abundant and eternal life in Christ. By ignoring one's spiri- tual health, one's external life is in jeopardy of loss. A faithful steward is concerned about every aspect of life as God's gift to them and to others. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) When we accept this gift of eternal life through faith in Christ, we are to become stewards of the precious gift of physical life that God had entrusted to us. We are to value it for ourselves and for others and we are to share with others His gift of abundant and eternal life. Join us on January 16 in our lesson entitled "Life to Treasure." As we continue our series on "Managing God's Assets," we want to learn to value human life according to God's standards.

Those attending will be discussing two topics that are very important for Georgia's libraries. To con- tinue to provide quality serv- ice to our citizens, additional funding is needed. A new con- struction program to remodel and build new library facilities is being considered by the state legislature. Another measure. concerns the need to raise the per capita funding provided for the purchase of books. The cost of books continues to increase but this funding has not been increased in many years, so libraries are able to buy fewer books each year. You can help by letting your state legislators know that you support increased funding for books and facility construction in your state library system.
