  • We want our kids and grandkids to have it better than us, right? A sobering principle in Scripture suggests that is in part up to us. The Bible points out that idolatrous actions result in consequences to the third and fourth generation. In other words, making money your idol steals a blessing from your descendants and being sexually undisciplined creates an irresponsible generational pattern that gets repeated. The next time you choose selfishness thinking "I'm not hurting anyone," think again.

The legacy you leave it rooted in the life you live.

Ron: The legacy you leave is rooted in the life you live.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: We all want our kids and grandkids to have it better than us, right? Well, there’s a sobering principle in Scripture that suggests that is in part up to us. The Bible points out that idolatrous actions result in consequences to the third and fourth generation. In other words, making money your idol steals a blessing from your descendants, being sexually undisciplined creates an irresponsible generational pattern that gets repeated and valuing the opinions of people more than God sets your grandchildren up to just do the same.

The next time you choose selfishness thinking “I’m not hurting anyone,” think again. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
