It was by faith that Isaac promised blessings for the future to his sons, Jacob and Esau. It was by faith that Jacob, when he was old and dying, blessed each of Joseph’s sons and bowed in worship as he leaned on his staff.Hebrews 11:20-21
These two verses show us the progression of faith. Abraham had faith and passed it on to Isaac. Here we see that Isaac passes his faith along to Jacob and Esau. Then Jacob passes his faith along to his son and all of Joseph’s sons. Whatever your faith is, it will be passed down to your children whether you like it or not. If you have a faith that is not very strong, then your children’s faith will not be strong either. If you invest in your faith and grow your faith every single day, then your children will have a faith as strong as yours.
Take some time today to stop and pray for the ones who come after you, whether that is children or just the next generation. Pray about how you can invest in the lives of others and help grow their faith, too.
A Prayer to Remember
May my faith be strong so that I can teach the next generation your truths. Amen.
