Apostle Grace Lubega
Proverbs 13:22 (KJV); A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.
The Bible says that a good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children. It is not only goodness for a man to do such a thing, it is the greatness in his spirit that causes him to leave an inheritance for the subsequent generations.
For many people, this is not the case. ‘Old money’ is a rare phenomenon in the world today. Many people have to start from scratch to build a story for themselves and their children after them.
Indeed, it is easy to walk in the steps of greatness but it is harder to pioneer greatness.
God does not want your family to live in a vicious generational cycle of starting from nothing. He wants to build an everlasting story with you. Your seed must be mighty in the earth (Psalm 112:2).
He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In this, He is the God of legacy because with Abraham, He began a story.
Legacy must begin with you too. Generations of your family must trace back the story of their greatness to you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God does not want your family to live in a vicious generational cycle of starting from nothing. He wants to build an everlasting story with you. Legacy must begin with you.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I am most grateful for this truth. I know that I owe a responsibility to the generations coming after me. I am ready and available for the story You must write through my household. It shall be told of my household that we are great because of what You are starting through me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
