“Cemented Footprint”

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. (Psalm 127:3)

Her writing career spanned three decades, from the mid-1960s through the mid-1990s. She wrote twelve books and received sixteen honorary doctorate degrees. But three years before she died of cancer in 1996, popular humorist Erma Bombeck told ABC TV interviewer that no matter how many columns she had written, her lagacy would be her three children. “If I did a bad job with them,” she said, “then everything else {I} do isn’t very important.” Bombeck had riches and fame and goodwill of millions of readers, but she realized that her top priority was taking care of her children.

Attention young parents: Don’t let the influence of this worlds temporary things, the deceitful riches, and earthly applause of men determine your destiny. Follow God’s plan for you that’s found in His written Word, and you will leave a godly legacy to your children and their children after them. For those who have already raised a family, but did not properly represent God to their children, it’s still not too late, humble yourselves before God, and let Him direct you into loving relationships with your grandchildren. God is faithful! It’s important to remember, “It’s not how we start out in life, but it’s how we finish, that matters most.”

Father, as Your servants and Christian parents, let our love for You and each other be like a “cemented footprint” as a reminder in our children’s home and family life. In Jesus name, Amen.

May the Lord bless your walk today!
