New Direction

All of us are in the process of leaving a spiritual legacy for our children. Some parents leave a negative spiritual legacy. One young man said, “My father said he was a Christian, but I never saw any evidence of it. I never saw him read the Bible and never heard him pray. He didn’t go to church. He often cursed, and when he lost his temper he was anything but a Christian. My poor mother put up with more junk than any woman should have to endure. If my father was a Christian, then I don’t want to be one.”

Sadly, this father left a spiritual legacy, but it was negative. The spiritual legacy we leave depends upon how closely our walk matches our talk. Perhaps today is the day to confess failures and turn your life in a new direction.
