What Kind of Inheritance?

"A good man leaveth an inheritance
to his children's children..."
Proverbs 13:22

What are we teaching them?
What are we laboring for?
What will we leave behind?

Temporary riches...

Or those eternal?

"Thy testimonies have I taken
as an heritage for ever:
for they are the rejoicing of my heart."
Psalm 119:111

"The fear of the LORD (ADONAI)
is clean, enduring for ever:
the judgments of the LORD (ADONAI)
are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold,
yea, than much fine gold:
sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb."
Psalm 19:9-10

"And whatsoever ye do,
do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive
the reward of the inheritance:
for ye serve the Lord Christ (Messiah)."
Colossians 3:23-24

"Blessed be the God (Elohim) and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ
(Yeshua the Messiah),
which according to His abundant mercy
hath begotten us again unto a lively hope
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ
(Yeshua the Messiah)
from the dead,
To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled,
and that fadeth not away,
reserved in heaven for you,
Who are kept by the power of God (Elohim)
through faith unto salvation
ready to be revealed in the last time."
1 Peter 1:3-5

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,
where moth and rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,
and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.
Matthew 6:19-21

By Thy grace, Father,
help me to give them
a spiritual heritage...
a godly heritage...
for Thy glory.

Thank you, Sarah Beth. ;o)
Yes, it is certainly something to ponder. One day our life will be done... how important to evaluate what we will leave behind that is of eternal value... which is the only thing that lasts.
