One thing that every parent owes the next generation is showing them the importance of keeping the way of the Lord and how to go about doing so. Abraham’s testimony comes to mind about how he taught his children to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice. Wouldn’t you love such a testimony? One where God is so sure of your character and what you would do. I certainly would love that to be my story. It is so important that our christian walk as parents is such an inspiration to our children. One that causes them to desire to follow Christ and even feel as though they are missing out on “the good life”, if they don’t. That is a debt we owe them to preserve their future. Let them confidently attribute their good standing with God to the impartation of His grace through your life. Provide spiritual meat and direction for your family, and your godly inheritance will be secure. Meditate on the scripture in Genesis 18: 17-19, and let it enrich your spirit man. For emphasis, please see it below
“…The Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do, 18 since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed? 19 For I have chosen him, so that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him.”
A great testimony of Abraham, isn’t it? May that be ours too, in Jesus name. Amen! May the grace to give our children what we owe them be ours in abundance!
