David wrote in Psalm 37:25, I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.
This verse, which I've heard my whole life in Christ has more significance today.  When I was younger, it was just something David said. Now it's something I have both lived and seen.
We had a visit last week from our youngest son, daughter-in-law, and new granddaughter. As I looked at her and held her, I thought about the goodness of God in our family. I reflected on her future and all the blessings that lie ahead.
I wondered what my grandparents thought about me when I was born. As a minister, my grandfather, Ray Elijah Hudson knew of these words from David. His life was certainly much more difficult than my life, coming from rural Tennessee. My father talk to me about his challenges growing up but never complained or lost sight of the blessings of God. My grandfather and father had never seen the righteous forsaken or their descendants begging for bread, though they had seen hard times. They were part of the Great Migration of Black families who moved north in search of a better life, which they found.
So my wife and I look at our children and grandchildren in the same light of God's blessing that our parents and grandparents looked at us.
I want to remind you that you have come from people who knew God, who prayed for you, and walked in the light of God. Continue to teach your children, grandchildren, and others to love God and walk in His blessing and favor.

God Bless and Be Encouraged!
