So, do you have joy that your children walk in truth? In God's truth? In the truth that you know you can trust them when they go out into this wicked world on their own? In walking with the Lord, they will actually require much guidance from Godly people. Most of all, they will be putting their entire trust and faith in our Lord for all things.
To have joy knowing your children are walking in truth is to know they are biblically saved from the clutches of the devil, and are heaven bound. They are living the life that is pleasing to our Lord Jesus Christ. Even when they backslide, they will still enter heaven although they will lose their rewards. Parents and grandparents, pray they will be led and taught by the Holy Spirit to live according to the Lord's will, and they store up treasures in heaven.
Joy in knowing your children walk in truth? Yes, by reading their Bibles more; praying more; seeking the Lord's face more; leaning towards the Lord's will for their life more; being in His will more; and doing their best to go to church as much as they can without wavering in their faith! They can do all these and so much more, so that their parents may see that in them. These children will bring much joy to their parents' hearts and souls. They give them more happiness knowing they are living for the Lord and not for men.
