Sunday 5/12/13 Motherís Day Minister Sandraís Sermon=Leaving a Legacy Deut. 6:1-3, Deut. 5:16
Many obituaries given at funerals lack a lot of details about the legacy of the person who has passed away. The legacy that a person leaves is very important. God spoke in Deuteronomy about how his people were to treat the family. The treatment of the family is important.
A legacy is the reputation that is passed onto you from your family. It is important that the parents teach the children to respect, honor and obey God. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom but the end of it is Love. We need to live Godís Word!
It is crucial that families teach their children the Word of God. Deut. 6:6-8 Love the Lord with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul. Teach your children to love the Lord. Also, their parents should live the word of God in front of their children. Parents need to be a living example of God before their children. With so much evil and falsehood in this world, the parents may be the only example of Godís truth in the childís life.
