Inheritance

I just got home yesterday from spending a nice long weekend at my parent's home. It was wonderful. I have a very close family and it is always a comfort to be surrounded by them.

Being in their home takes me back to my childhood and so many memories. My mom and dad have a house filled with memories.

The inheritance I will receive from my parent's is one that is filled with love.

It makes me think of my own children and the inheritance I will pass on to them someday.

While I was at my parent's home I read the book of 1 Peter. One of the first verses that I read was 1 Peter 1:3-6

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.

Money, Antiques, any material things will not matter. I hope to leave my children with a legacy of faith. I hope that through my life they will see that I lived my life for Jesus Christ.

What inheritance do you hope to leave your children?

I really need this today... I've been struggling with family issues and wondering how I can be different and my relationship with my children can be different, and you just helped! I have a different legacy to offer than the one I had from my family... "a legacy of faith" in Jesus Christ! Thank you! ♥ Michelle

No kids, but I do pray He is using me to show His love to all I meet.
