“And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children[b] of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you” Galatians 3:29 NLT.
What type of legacy are you leaving to your children?
Life moves quickly. It seems like moments ago that my daughters where playing with Barbies, now they are leaving for college. If we don’t measure each day carefully, it will be filled with stuff that doesn’t really matter.
Our children are our heirs. It is not just the physical things that we pass down to them like the color of hair or eyes, but it is the way we do life. We need to take stock of what we are truly passing on. Your children hear some of what you say, but they notice mostly what you do. Have you ever noticed them mimic the tone of you voice in an unkind way, scolding their younger brother or sister. Those are the types of things that are “caught” from you rather than taught.
The Word in Galatians 3:29, tells us that when we belong to Christ we are heirs of God’s promise. We inherit from our Father God precious promises that we can only fulfill in Him. When you think about your kids, are you helping them become heirs of God’s promise? Is your life and home so filled with His presence and power that faith in Christ Jesus is contagious.
