What An Inheritance


– #23 –

Today is a “Quote” day and not a “Spiritual” one, but I think that this one’s applicable to everyone regardless:

“The Lord God… visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.”
– Moses (Exodus 34:6, 7)

There are some things we inherit through nature and others we learn through nurture. I don’t think we can condemn either. What I have recently pulled from this is that we all inherit things, both desirous and unwanted, from the previous generation.

It seems to be that undesirable traits take at least three or four generations to eradicate. The continued existence of those inherited things is a decision that each generation gets to make.

To my parents: Thank you for teaching me to become better and providing me with the best opportunities you could to help me be successful.

To my [future] children: Please don’t hold my weaknesses against me. Just do better than me.
