“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” - Deuteronomy 6:5-7
Let us replace the word giving with gifting. These words
that I am gifting you today...these words are God’s gift, His inheritance for us to pass onto our children. Let this be our legacy. God has gone before us. Let the love of God be in our hearts. Let us build a culture of God’s love to influence our families in coming generations, for blessings will flow.
Teach the ways of God. This will be our stronghold. When something is lived day by day for your children they will be influenced. Teaching and guidance is a true way to being mature Christians. There is more freedom in God’s gift to us. His legacy is not a tradition; it is a way of life.
Lord, thank you that we can come to You at any time, any place to pray and talk with You. Let us show our love for
You in all our daily living. Let your love be our legacy, this is what we stand for. No other God, but the one true God of our lives. Thank you for this gift of love. Which covers us and draws us closer to knowing You, then this gift that can be given to others. Amen.
How are we influencing our children, to show them Gods love? How are we sharing Gods love with others? In our actions, in our listening, in our wording? Are we allowing God’s love to influence our daily lives from morning to night?
