Leaving a spiritual inheritance

March 15th, 2017

One thing I am conscious of doing is leaving a positive spiritual inheritance to my kids. I want them to see I am serious about my faith in Christ and how it impacts all I do and say. 

I don’t want be half hearted and leave a bad spiritual impression on my kids. I don’t want to live one way on Sunday and live another way at home during the week. I want to be consistent in my walk with Christ.

In today’s Our Daily Bread it touched on this idea and it talks about the impact on Timothy by his mother and grandmother. Here is a snippet…

In the Bible we read about grandma Lois and mom Eunice, who shared with Timothy genuine faith (2 Tim. 1:5). Their influence prepared this man to share the good news with many others.

We can prepare a spiritual inheritance for those whose lives we influence by living in close communion with God. In practical ways, we make His love a reality to others when we give them our undivided attention, show interest in what they think and do, and share life with them. We might even invite them to share in our celebrations! When our lives reflect the reality of God’s love, we leave a lasting legacy for others.

King David was described by God as a man after His own heart. I want to leave that legacy to my kids and grandkids when they come along. I want to leave a positive spiritual inheritance that will be far more valuable than money.

God Bless,

Dave
