According to Proverbs 13:22 “A good man leaveth an inheritance to his childrens children,and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just”.An inheritance is simple something passed down from parents to children,and everyone has an inheritance,be it a generational curse or blessing. Unfortunately,most people only associate inheritance with land,money,jewelry,and other earthly possession,which can be stolen or destroyed. An inheritance is passed on most if the time after death,because ,you can’t take anything from this earth with you. However,there is an inheritance that you can take with you,and it’s more valuable than all earthly possessions,and it will be waiting for you in eternity,if you plan to go there. What earthly possession can ve more priceless and valuable than the word of God,which will teach you, keep you,guide you,comfort you,give wisdom,knowledge,understanding and a whole lot more. King David said in Psalms 119:72 “The law of thy mouth is better unto me,than thousands of gold and silver”. However,in Deuteronomy 6:6&7 it says,”And these words,which I command thee this day,shall be in thine heart,and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children,and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house,and when thou walkest by the way,and when thou liest down,and when thou risest up. Then Deuteronomy 8:18 explains it this way,”But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God,for it is He who giveth thee power to get wealth,that He may establish His covenant which He swore unto thy fathers as it is this day,then He repeats it in Deut. 11:16-22. Some folks store up earthly inheritance for their children,yet refuse to reveal the source of the inheritance,but Matthew 6:19-21 plainly says,” Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth,where moth and rust doth corrupt,and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt,and where thieves do not break through nor steal:For where your treasure is,there will your be also”. The best kind of inheritance a parent can leave for a child is God’s word,and 1Peter 1:3-5 describes it like this,”Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,who according to His abundant mercy,hath begotten us again into a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,to an inheritance incorruptible,and undefiled,and that fadeth not away,reserved in heaven for you. Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time”.
Hebrews 9:15 says,”How much more shall the blood of Christ,who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God,purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And  for this cause He is the mediator of the new testament,that by means of death,for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament,they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance”. What’s significant to you? An earthly inheritance that is temporary or an heavenly inheritance that last a lifetime. Ephesians 6:4 says,”And,ye fathers,provoke not your chikdren to wrath,but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”. And Proverbs 22:6 says,”Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old,he will not depart from it” what kind of inheritance are you leaving for your children? The worlds goods or heavenly treasures. There is nothing wrong with earthly inheritance as long as they know who created it,and them.
