What’s Left Behind
I do some little devotions in the morning, the books are bible based but from two completely different authors and when they match up as they did this morning I pay close attention. Both devotions were on what we leave behind and how we will be remembered. Will your kids tell your grandchildren that you were a loving parent that always had time to play or answer a question or will they say you were short tempered more concerned with work then family. I know we must provide for our family and its easy to get consumed with it because so many of us either work from home or bring our work home with us. It’s also easy to shew our kids away then it is to answer the same question five hundred times. Somewhere along the way someone prayed for me,my parents werent church types and I didnt know my grandparents very well but I’m sure that someone’s prayers were answered the day I hit my knees and gave up 25 yrs of addiction. I will take the time to pray for others, I will show my children a loving God by being an example of His grace and mercy. I will make mistakes but my children will carry from me a dad who tried to be the best daddy he could be. What will you leave behind?
