Leave an inheritance to our grandchildren

Something for me to do in future if I have the means:-

Proverbs 13

22 A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: … -kjv

22 A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, …  -niv

22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his grandchildren, …  -hcsb

  1. Too frequently, we tend to narrowly understand inheritance as monetary.
    While that is practical and important, the spiritual inheritance is more urgent.

    Like they always say: you can feed a person today by giving him a fish; you can feed the same person a lifetime by teaching him how to fish.

    Our next generation needs to learn the presence of a holy, loving, and omnipotent God. From there, they need to learn dependence, spiritual faithfulness and tenacity.

    Easier said than done :-)

    • You have made some good points Kong Wah.

    • Just heard over radio that this verse refers to physical wealth because the second part of Proverbs 13:22 “and the wealth of the sinner is laid out for the just.” is talking about physical wealth.

  2. This Bible Verse makes me feel uneasy. Reading it makes me assume that first we need to leave our children part of us. If God says this it must be important. First I have always left my two sons the habit of serving and belonging to God. I have set the example of living for Christ. Notice the Bible Verse does not say the inheritance must be money. As far as myself when my grandchildren live 1300 miles away it is very hard to set a LIFE example but is possible.

    • Don’t think it is a commandment my friend but good if we are able to do what the verse says
