Topic: A GOOD LEGACY 2
Text: Proverbs 22:1 KJV
1 A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold
A legacy is something that is handed down from one period of time to another period of time or from a generation to another generation.
Last week we dwelt on this scripture in Proverbs 13:22 which says “A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.” and we deduced from that scripture that it takes a good man (a righteous man) to leave a good legacy (inheritance) for his children and that a sinner (no matter how he pretends to be good on earth) cannot not leave a good legacy for his children.
Today, we want to study a biblical example who left legacies for his generation.
Father Abraham as he is popularly called by bible study children left a good legacy for his generation, as a matter of fact, this legacy is still a blessing to everyone who can connect by faith to it even till today. Abraham left a divine inheritance for his generations. When we say divine it means God gave them to him and then he passed it on to his generation, this divine inheritance entails all round (spiritual, physical, financial, emotional e.t.c) blessings and prosperity. The blessings of Abraham are so great because they are generational and eternal blessings, they are blessings of nations, and they are blessings every child of God prays for and are available for genuine children of God by faith. What an awesome legacy we all received from father Abraham.
However, its important to note that father Abraham received and left this great divine inheritance because he was a good man according to Proverbs 13:22. Abraham was a man of faith (Romans 4:20-21), he was a righteous man (Genesis 17:1, Romans 4:22-23), he was a patient man who waited on God for these great blessings (Romans 4:19), he was a man who feared God, do justice, obeyed God commandments and also taught his entire household to do likewise (Genesis 18:19). I know your prayer is the blessings of Abraham be yours but can you pay the price for such a divine inheritance? Think about it, and what legacy will you leave behind for your generation? God bless you.
* Father, help me to leave a good legacy for my generation in Jesus Name.
