Honoring God Through a Spiritual Legacy
Deuteronomy 6:1-9 6 These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach
you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess,
2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by
keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.
3 Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a
land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.
7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road,
when you lie down and when you get up.
8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.
9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
To leave a spiritual legacy you have to first start with you. The best way to prove to your children and others the value and relevance of faith in Christ is to be a living demonstration of that truth. Having three daughters at a young age back to back, I could not compartmentalize my faith or allow my priorities to get out of whack, or they’d “learn” that Christ really isn’t all that important. Instead I had to make Christ central in my life, and diligently foster my relationship with Him and imbed God’s Word in my heart, so they’d learn that life is all about Jesus. So, don’t be afraid to live your faith in front of your kids – all the abundant, exciting, trying, and messy parts. Don’t sugar coat life. Don’t live life behind a mask. They’ll see your faith is real. Authentic. Relevant. To leave a spiritual legacy you have to give them God’s word – In time where so many teens and young adults are so skeptical of the Bible, this is important. Many young adults believe the Bible is just a book written by men full of stories and advice. We can stop this growing trend by teaching our children to know and love God’s Word. We must be purposeful. We cannot leave it to chance. Make a plan. – We may not have done it daily, but when the girls were young, we would have family devotions, read Bible stories at bedtime, play worship music that comes straight from Scripture. You could develop a family scripture memory program. We taught our daughters biblical principles to live by like truth, excellence, servant-hood, courage, determination, and character. So, instill God’s truth in their hearts any way you can! And “as you walk along the road,” shine God’s Word on all the daily circumstances of their lives. When my girls accomplished something great or small we intentionally helped them make the connection to scripture or biblical principle. When they failed, or felt as though they failed at something we intentionally helped them make the connection to scripture or biblical principles. To leave a spiritual legacy you have to tell your family’s stories – Share the stories that tell of God’s miraculous activity around you and of His faithfulness to you and your family. Early on I shared my struggle of being born to a drug addicted mother and not knowing who my father was. I told of my failures and triumphs. I want them to know the same resilience God gave me, is flowing in them. The same grace and mercy that was afforded me, is available to them. Weave the stories into the fabric of your family history. Don’t let yourself or your children forget! To leave a spiritual legacy you have to stand firm in shaky times -Trials not only work our faith, they can also prove how our faith works. If you make the truth of God’s Word the bedrock for your life, when difficulty comes you will stand firm. An unshakeable faith in shaky times is the most effective testimony you can give your children and those you have influence over.
