TOPIC - BUILD A LASTING LEGACY!

Read: Proverbs 22:6

MEMORISE: _Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it_ (Proverbs 22:6).

EXPOSITION
In his book, _A Spiritual Clinic_ J. Oswald Sanders, wrote about the lasting family legacies of two families from New York: “Two families from the state of New York were studied very carefully. One was the Max Juke’s family and the other was the Jonathan Edward’s family. The thing that they discovered in this study is remarkable: like begets like.”

Max Jukes was an unbelieving man and he married a woman of like-character who lacked principle. And among the known descendants, over 1,200 were studies. Three hundred and ten became professional vagrants; 440 physically wrecked their lives by debauched lifestyle; 130 were sent to the penal servitude for an average of thirteen years each, 7 of them for murder. There were over 100 who became alcoholic; 60 became habitual thieves; 190 public prostitutes. Of the 20 who learned a trade, 10 of them learned the trade in a state prison. It cost the state about $1,500,000 and they made no contribution whatever to the society.”

“In about the same era, the family of Jonathan Edwards came on the scene. He was a man of God, who married a woman of like-character. The study yielded the following concerning Jonathan Edward’s descendants: Three hundred became clergymen, missionaries, and theological professors; over 100 became college professors; over 100 became attorneys; 30 of them became judges; 60 of them became physicians; over 60 became authors of good classics; 14 became presidents of universities. There were numerous giants in American industry that emerged from this family. Three became United State congressmen and one became the vice president of the United States.”

Never forget the impact that your life’s decisions will make… on yourself, your marriage, and on your children. In ways you will never know in this life, you are building a legacy that will last for generations!

PRAYER POINTS

1. Confess every negative legacy you have laid; pray for mercy and ask God to help you to start laying a godly legacy henceforth.
2. Lord, help me to overcome the shadows of my father that may be haunting me.
3. Lord God, help our leaders to always remember that they will give account of their stewardship.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Judges 21:2 – 21:25; Ruth 1:1- 2:18; Luke 14:34 – 14:20
