Hebrews 11:20–21 (ESV)
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.
I put to “by faith” writings together.
It shows that they believed in God and his promises and they passed it on to the next generation. It is important that we pass the faith onto our next generation. We can teach them and lead them, but we cannot control them. It is sad to see
a child not pass on the faith to their children (your grandchildren). Often a decision like this is made by a child and does not consider the failure to pass on the faith and to pass on salvation. Doesn’t even cross their minds. I give
thanks that my parents passed it on to me… and I give thanks that I did not reject it.
I pray: O Lord, I pray for the future generation(s) that the seed planting takes root in our children, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren… and so on. Help them to stay focused on you. Amen.
