Your Godly Heritage

What is your heritage to your children?  Heritage is defined at as something that comes or belongs to one by reason of birth; an inherited lot or portion:; something reserved for one: .

Heritage is normally land, but most of us in these days and times does not have a lot of land, except maybe the little bit our house is on.  But we can give our children the heritage of Godliness.  Taking them to church, living your life as an example, prayers, faithfulness, devotions, through all of this your children will see God in your life.  They will see how through the dark times you react.  They will see how through the times of exultation you praise God.  So give them a heritage they can hold on to.

Psalm 111

The LORD Praised for His Goodness.
    1Praise the LORD!
         I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart,
         In the company of the upright and in the assembly.
    2Great are the works of the LORD;
         They are studied by all who delight in them.
    3Splendid and majestic is His work,
         And His righteousness endures forever.
    4He has made His wonders to be remembered;
         The LORD is gracious and compassionate.
    5He has given food to those who fear Him;
         He will remember His covenant forever.
    6He has made known to His people the power of His works,
         In giving them the heritage of the nations.
    7The works of His hands are truth and justice;
         All His precepts are sure.
    8They are upheld forever and ever;
         They are performed in truth and uprightness.
    9He has sent redemption to His people;
         He has ordained His covenant forever;
         Holy and awesome is His name.
    10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
         A good understanding have all those who do His commandments;
         His praise endures forever.

  1. HE will remember His covenant forever.... The problem is never with the Lord breaking covenant - always with us, His children.
    I am blessed to have had such a Godly heritage, and pray that our children will pass on the same to *their* children.
