Bible Verses for Grandparents

Being a grandparent is something that many people dream of, but the reality can be more difficult than the dream in our heads. Juggling relationships with your son- or -daughter-in-law, striking the right balance of being a grandparent and not a parent, and finding time to see one’s grandchildren can all make the gift of being a grandparent challenging at times. This is especially true for those who don’t have the sort of relationship with their children or grandchildren that they’d like to have. Pope Francis, on World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly in 2023, proclaimed, “Let us honour them, neither depriving ourselves of their company nor depriving them of ours. May we never allow the elderly to be cast aside!” Comforted by his words, take comfort in God’s words with these Bible verses for grandparents.
