A legacy you leave to your children’s children when you live a life of Righteousness, Holiness. These are My gifts–given freely to all who call on My Name. And yet, there are those who gladly receive Salvation but,
from sin they never restrain.
Little ones trust that you are leading the way, and it is you they emulate. They fail to see Me, for your sin blocks the view, of the one who would call them home.
If your life is a measure of good works and pleasure, no sin to captivate thee. The actions you speak are louder than words–an example of one that does seek…
the Father above, be it a gift of love to those children you’d raise to be meek. Therefore, be not wise in your own eyes, but look to your Father in love. For if you believe, that He will receive, your loved ones unto His Throne…
Then you would be wise, to see with His Eyes…
the damage that’s certainly done.
When you no longer think, that your actions can speak–then little ones no longer will learn…
that it’s Me they should seek, or their future is bleak–for sin has no rest of its own.
Be My Example–
Lead My Sheep!
“A righteous man who walks in his integrity–blessed are his sons after him!” Proverbs 20:7
“Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good life let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. ” James 3:13
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Ephesians 5:1
“For once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” Ephesians 5:8-11
“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16
“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you would. But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law.” Galatians 5:16-18
“–the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy peace, patience, gentleness, self-control; against such there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Galatians 5:22-25
“Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.” Galatians 6:7-8
“As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more. But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.” Psalms 103:15-18
“Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies; who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways!” Psalms 119:1-3
AMEN! We have drifted away from Holiness and forgotten how it is the character of our LORD.
Yes and Yes! Bless you Toni and thank you for your faithful following!!
Your blog and the others I follow are so important to me. Being a caregiver to my quadriplegic husband and babysitter for our kindergarten granddaughter, I don’t have a lot of emotional support. These blogs and the true fellowship I have received from them is truly the best gift the LORD could ever give me, outside of Jesus’ sacrifice for me.
I am so glad for the wonders of technology to be a part, and do my part! Many blessings to you and your family!!
