Today´s reading:
OT: II Chronicles 21-23
NT: Romans 11:13-36
Ps: Psalm 22:1-18
Pr: Proverbs 20:7

Today´s notable verse:

The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.

Proverbs 20:7 (NIV)

It is perhaps this thought above all others that compels me to pursue righteousness: I want to be a blessing to my children. I want to pass on a legacy of righteousness and blessing, and not one of iniquity and struggle. All too often, I fail when I consider only the consequences to myself for my actions; but when I consider that my obedience or disobedience will have an impact on my future children, I find the strength and the will to pursue righteousness whole-heartedly.
