your children, grandchildren, and any who see or know your life. You
teach in ways you of which you may be unaware.
This is very personal for me because as I shared a few weeks ago, I
am a Believer today because of my grandfather. I thank God for him.
In this life, He was unaware of the influence he had on me, and
therefore, on every person this ministry touches.
Also be mindful that family is not necessarily defined by physical
ancestry. Even if you do not have children, someone somewhere is
watching your life. Teach them well.
We will not hide these truths from our children but will tell the
next generation about the glorious deeds of the LORD. We will tell
of his power and the mighty miracles he did. For he issued his
decree to Jacob; he gave his law to Israel. He commanded our
ancestors to teach them to their children, so the next generation
might know them--even the children not yet born--that they in turn
might teach their children. So each generation can set its hope anew
on God, remembering his glorious miracles and obeying his commands.
(Psa 78:4-7 NLT)
