FAMILY

Legacy. Heritage. Tradition. What comes to mind when you consider these words? God’s plan is to create spiritual legacies for those who follow Jesus by faith. He desires for our children and grandchildren to be great witnesses for Christ because of our faith. This is God’s plan for us. Several generations can be touched by our love for God.

Marriage and family were God’s idea. Choose today to walk in the Lord’s wisdom by showing love and honor to those in your family.

LIVE IT

Respond in your journal or with a trusted friend to the following questions?

1. In what specific ways do I think my relationship with Jesus Christ will impact my children or even grandchildren?

2. By God’s grace, what kinds of things would I love to hear spoken about me at my funeral?

3. What 2 things can I begin to do NOW so that I may move toward a godly legacy in Jesus Christ?

PRAYER

“Lord God, family can be so difficult. Thinking about raising children and avoiding the sins of my parents is overwhelming. I know, Lord, that you desire to bless others through my life. Help me to live for you in all things so that many generations after me would benefit from a saving, loving relationship with you. I surrender these things to you. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.”
