Blessing of the generation -- Rev. Dr. J. Samuel Sudhakar

Scripture : 'A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children...' Proverbs 13:22.

God who called Abraham desired to have a close walk even with his generation. The principles of faith and obedience which Abraham had were followed by Isaac and later by Jacob. What God promised Abraham, began to be fulfilled even in the generations of Isaac and Jacob. Abraham was called the friend of God, and he left a legacy behind to Isaac who in turn left it to Jacob. It is the inheritance of sincerity and faith upon God.

The richness of obedience and waiting at God's feet were seen in the lives of Isaac and Jacob. You are reading this book today because your parents have left an inheritance of prayer and fear in your heart, that has made you read and meditate the Word of God. As you have begun this race of blessings it is your duty to pass on the baton of blessings to your generation.

You are needed on this earth by many to be a blessing to them. People around you look to you, as through you some things happen. Through the prayers of your parents you are born with blessings and these blessings you cannot keep to yourself but the inheritance should pass on to your children and their children. Hence, from today, recollecting the life of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, begin planning for your everyday blessings that you will shine as a magnificent star of blessings that when people look at you they will say, 'Here is the father of blessings.'

The only wealth that cannot be stolen by the world is your obedience, faith, love and trust in God. Today, pass on your inheritance to your generations.

Prayer : LORD, help me to leave behind blessings to my generations. Amen.

Thought for the Day : The key to blessings is given to us.
