Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.

I wish you all the best and God's blessings for the New Year 2024 and hope that the New Year's annual bible verse will help you to serve in love: 

Do everything with love. (1 Corinthians 16:14 NLT

What is actually the New Year's annual bible verse? 
It's a tradition since the 30s in Germany to chose a bible verse for the New Year. It is selected by the Oekumenische Arbeitsgruppe fuer Bibellesen (ÖAB) - Ecumenical Working Group for Bible Reading  (e.g. Catholic Bible Work & YMCA). The current political & social situation plays no role because the selection takes place three years in advance. 

Here are some lyrics, that fits to the 2024 annual bible verse, from a great German gospel rock group from the 80s: Damaris Joy

(Original lyrics in German, translated by Google translate)

Come let's learn together,
what really matters in life.
Let's be grateful for everyone,
who is with us on the right path.
Let's practice love,
everyone wherever you are.
Let's set an example there,
where you walk the path in the darkness.

We are smart, we speak well,
know what life is about.
Have sense, know our way around,
are studied, represent something,
shine with words well formulated,
know the Bible and are well informed.

But we talk without acting,
go forward and yet remain standing,
and don't see the danger,
to miss our real mission.

We know full well that it's not enough
when you insult world hunger.
Everyone knows that it's not enough
if you just criticize the injustice in the world.
We know full well that we are lying to ourselves,
if we defeat wars with words.

But we talk without acting,
go forward and yet remain standing,
and don't see the danger,
to miss our real mission.
