Think About & Invest in the Generations Who Come Behind

It is easy to think as we approach retirement, or actually become retired, our time is now for us. We may think it is finally time for us to travel, play golf, or just enjoy the years we have remaining however we choose, but this is a very short-sighted way to look at the last years we have on this Earth.

While we are able to see retirement as, "me-time", we also are able to spend these last years doing something which truly matters. We are able to invest in the generations who come behind us and hand down the faith to them.

You and I likely, very likely, have fewer years before us, than we do behind us. Why would we want to spend those few years in ways which focus upon us? Nothing, absolutely nothing is more important than seeing the generations who come behind us make the choice to put their faith in Jesus and then choose to walk faithfully with Him. Time spent on us will mean nothing if our children and/or grandchildren do not choose to believe and walk with God.

The pastors at my church have been teaching through the Book of Isaiah since September; it has been an excellent series! This past Sunday (March 24, 2019), Senior Pastor Jim Samra taught from Isaiah 39 and challenged us to not just think about the generations who come behind us, but to act in a way which helps point them to God. You will find the sermon at this link - I highly recommend watching it as you will be encouraged and challenged to think about the generations who come behind you.
