Proverbs 10:7 (ESV) – “The memory of the righteous is a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot.”
The legacy or memories of a righteous loved one will be a blessing. It will linger on. I remember our first Christmas without my Daddy and how I dreaded the family all arriving at my house, and how Mom would be. It was a precious time remembering Daddy. My mom brought angels for all of us girls, and my sister had gone to Mom’s and picked up a bunch of clocks that Daddy had bought over the years and repaired. She wrote a poem about clocks and Daddy and wrapped each of Daddy’s grandchildren a clock.
What am I doing to leave memories and a legacy that will bless my loved ones when I am gone? Am I leaving a rich, spiritual legacy or am I leaving rot? Am a blessing to those I come in contact with each day?
K: Kneeling in Prayer:
Father thank You for this lesson. May I always take it to heart. May the things I do every day, every hour Lord leave a blessing for my family and friends.
