Hebrews 11:20–22 (ESV)
Heroes of Faith
20 By faith Isaac invoked future blessings on Jacob and Esau. 21 By faith Jacob, when dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, bowing in worship over the head of his staff. 22 By faith Joseph, at the end of his life, made mention of the exodus of the Israelites and gave directions concerning his bones.

I have included the blessings of Isaac, Jacob and Essau, Joesph (his sons) in today’s reading.  It shows the passing on of the blessings.  The greatest gift we can give our children is the passing down of faith to them.  We baptize them, raise them up in God’s Word, and teach them God’s ways.  The people in today’s reading remained in the faith until death.  We pray that our children, grand children, and so on... remain in the faith.

I pray: O Lord, help me to remain faithful unto the end.  I pray this for my children, my children’s children, and so on.  I also pray that my children will marry faithful women who will endure unto the end.  Amen.
