From Generation To Generation

Tradition............Before we eat, we pray.
Heritage................His word being passed down from one generation to the next.
Legacy.................What we leave behind.
Family................What we should cherish and work hard to keep in tact.
What keeps us in Thankful Praise? What keeps a family strong? What keeps us in His presence?
And when do they grasp on to all that we know, all that we have taken in? Don't we start out young? Don't we learn at a very early age? Don't we drink in what is given to us?
The book of life........That's exactly what it is. It helps us prepare for whats to come. For what He said must happen. How will they know if we don't lead by example? If we are not found immersed in His word. We need to be prepared..........They need to be prepared. The fall of the world stems from the fall of the family. We are not able to stand on The Rock, when we are building on sinking sand. Knowledge is Wisdom and wisdom is found in the Book of Life.

 The most valuable tradition, the most valuable legacy, what makes a good family heritage, is one that has been nurtured in His word. It's the manual for your life. And if your not reading it because you don't understand it, then find a small bible study group. I promise you that the more you study and read the more you will begin to understand, the more you will fall in love. The more you will fall in Love with the Author.

In this world I can easily feel afraid. Not so much for me, but for the ones I'm leaving my legacy to. My heart breaks at the thought of what they might see in their life time, in their childrens life time.

His word is my shelter from the storms in my head. From the thoughts that twist around and become more than I can bare.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7

For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Psalm 100:5

So become immersed. Drink it in. Fill your cup till it over flows. And you will find that your spirit is made with power, love and self discipline. And the ones that you think are not watching you......Will, and they will keep the Tradition, Leave a Legacy, and Make strong your Family Heritage!
