WE DO NOT LIVE UNTO OURSELVES

BeggingBreadHow we live, what we do, and the decisions we make not only affect our own lives, but our children’s lives too. Our obedience to God’s commandments also determines the destiny of our children. Here’s a sampling of Scriptures regarding this truth:

Deuteronomy 4:40 (ESV): “Therefore you shall keep his statues and his commandments, which I command you today, that it MAY GO WELL WITH YOU AND WITH YOUR CHILDREN AFTER YOU.”

Deuteronomy 5:29: “O that there was such a heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep ALL my commandments ALWAYS that it might be WELL WITH THEM, AND WITH THEIR CHILDREN FOREVER!” Do you notice that this Scripture has an exclamation after it? It must be important in God’s eyes.

Deuteronomy 12: 28: “Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it MAY GO WELL WITH THEE, AND WITH THY CHILDREN AFTER THEE FOREVER, when thou doest that which is good and right in the sight of the LORD thy God.”

Psalm 112:1, 2 (ESV): “Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who greatly delights in his commandments! HIS OFFSPRING WILL BE MIGHTY IN THE LAND; the generation of the upright will be blessed.” Do you notice another exclamation mark in this Scripture?

What a responsibility we have as parents. Even our attitudes, negative or positive, ugly or godly, pass on to our children and future children. Parenting is not just for today. We are building dynasties—for good or for bad, for God and His kingdom or for the enemy.

May we pour out lives into building godly dynasties.
