The following brief reflection originally appeared in the June 2016 newsletter of Renewal Ministries’ Country Coordinators Don and Pat Turbitt. You can subscribe to their newsletter by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“All your children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of your children.” (Is 54:13)
There is no heritage like the knowledge of God’s love. There is no inheritance as empowering. As you live your life of faith before your family, it’s like stocking a vault that will bless everyone. And it’s never too late to begin. As you live authentically before God, you leave a blueprint for those who are watching. That example can last for generations, beyond your view, and may be more influential than you can imagine.
You can be that kind of person—the kind that builds up and strengthens. Ask the Lord God to help you. He will show you how.
Blessings to you,
Don and Pat Turbitt
