What will you leave when you die?

WHAT SHOULD WE leave behind when we die…?

A faithful family.

We will leave a mourning family behind on that sad day, but will we leave a faithful one?  Will each be on his or her way to heaven?  We are not able to make decisions for them, but we will have a great influence on each, especially our children (Proverbs 22:6).

Sarah left a godly man to mourn (Genesis 23:2).  Abraham left faithful sons behind (Genesis 18:19; 25:8).  Zebedee and Salome gave the world James and John.  Lois taught Eunice, who molded Timothy (2 Timothy 1:5; 3:15).

If we would leave such a family, we must start NOW, because the years may come when they will not listen (Ecclesiastes 12:2).  No greater legacy can be left than faith in God and faithfulness to His church.  (Allen Webster)
