Amazing Grace

John Newton wrote “Amazing Grace” in 1779.
His Godly mother died when he was 7 years old, but not before she taught him Bible verses and hymns, and prayed fervently for him.
He was saved after much sin and many years of service in the British Navy. After a terrific storm at sea, when the sailor thought that all was lost and he was going to die, on March 10, 1748, he gave his life to Christ.
He wrote, “The Lord came to me from on high and delivered me from deep waters.”
He became a powerful preacher, a foe of slavery and wrote hundreds of hymns.
He never forgot his Mother’s influence. We can learn from his experience.
Start teaching our children and grandchildren about The Lord when they are young and even though they may stray, our prayers and training will not be fruitless.

Proverbs 22:6
Train up a child in the way he should go:
and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
