'THE BEST LEGACY'

"A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children" - Proverbs 13:22
.
Secular education is usually said to be the best legacy in the world but of what good is an education that leads you nowhere in eternity? It is good to be educated but it is best to inherit a good legacy from one's parent. 
.
The best legacy you can leave for your children is to train them in the way of the Lord aside academic training.
.
Lois, Timothy's grandmother left a good legacy for Timothy's mother, Eunice, which was passed onto Timothy (2 Tim. 1:5). The legacy was an ability to trust in God - unfeigned faith.
.
Lois must have had a committed relationship with Jesus this was why it was possible for her to pass on a good legacy to her children's children.
.
What made that possible for her? Lois must have draw a pattern of life for herself consistently which she then transfer to Eunice and was later passed on to Timothy.
.
Aside properties, what will your children inherit from you? If you do not define the value you ought to live with in life, you won't have anything to leave for your children.
.
What have you benefited from your father? What values have you learnt from your mother? What will you leave for your own children?
.
You can't give what you don't have except you deceive yourself. Are you walking in the way you should go? It is when you're following a path that you can encourage others to walk the same path with you.
