“That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.” Deut 11:21 KJV
What’s the best way to establish an inheritance and a strong family line? Godliness! I think some people may read this verse and think that what God is saying is that if you live right everything will go well for you and your life will be Heaven on earth. That’s just wrong. Neither Scripture nor experience bear that out!
What God is saying is that if you live for Him and train your children to live for Him your family line will be strong until the end of time (as long as there is a sky over the planet). I have to remind myself through the trials of life my righteous response is not just about how I feel( frankly there are times I do not feel like responding righteously to life); It’s about the legacy I am leaving, that my children and their children would know that there is a God in Heaven who is greater than everything this life throws at us!
