It is a magnificent thing when an old man can stand and say, “God has been my hope from my youth on. I have seen sore troubles, but have never been forsaken, and by God’s grace have never forsaken Him.” That is what I want my sons to say in 70 years. I don’t want them to have to give any glowing conversion story. I want them to say, just like I hope to say myself with the Psalmist, “For thou, O Lord, art my hope; my trust, O Lord, from my youth” (71:5).
