The Intentional Family

When Harry and Agnes of Washington, got married, they intentionally decided to have a strong family life. So when they had children, they built a summer cabin on a small island. There they played games and spent time together. They prayed and showed Christian love to others. When Harry and Agnes died, the family didn’t stop gathering.

As Agnes neared death, she said: “I’ve done everything I wanted to do. I have no regrets.” She had lived an intentional life, planned out as well as could be expected.

At Agnes’ funeral, the pastor said: “Our time on earth is limited, and God calls us to be good stewards by living intentionally. That means using everything we have—in ways that would delight God. So that at the end of our lives, we might have no regrets.”
