What is the legacy I leave? What is the inheritance I leave for my children and generations to come? How have I prepared the next generation to be stewards of their inheritance?
Our time on Earth is short, but the impact we make for God’s kingdom lasts forever. To practice generational stewardship, we must purposefully live our lives in a way so that long after our days on Earth are over, God will still be glorified from the decisions we have made. It sounds like a huge task. But, it is one we can take day by day so that over the course of our lives we have left a godly legacy.
Generational stewardship is about more than just leaving a monetary inheritance, it is about leaving a spiritual one as well. What values do we want to pass on to our children, and our children’s children? We can leave a legacy for them of grace, good character, generosity, and joy. God’s Word explains it simply — we should pass down the “glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done.” (Psalm 78:4) When we instill these teachings in the next generation, we are raising them up to be faithful stewards who will prepare the generation after them. Crown is here to help you as you embark on this journey.
