A Spiritual Legacy

 Maybe to some it would seem that we don’t have a rich inheritance to pass on, especially since there’s no significant financial inheritance waiting for the next generation. But I know that isn’t true. I open my Bible and turn to the book of Deuteronomy where it tells us that before the Israelites entered the promise land, they were instructed to teach their children about all the miracles that God did for them: how He helped them escape from Egypt, parted the Red Sea, fought their battles for them, and miraculously led them through the desert for 40 years. The Israelites were commanded to tell of God’s wondrous works from generation to generation. It even tells them when to instruct their children: “when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.”

Reading these passages I realize that more than any other type of inheritance, God thinks it is important that we pass on our spiritual heritage. — How are you passing on a spiritual legacy to your grandchildren?
