Insight and Highlight
What will you leave for your children?
What you leave for your children as inheritance, will thrive on the Godly morals you leave in them.
A good look at Prov 13:22 and Psalm 127:3 tells us that the inheritance we leave for our children and children's children is measured not only in what we leave for them but more in what we leave in them.
Inheritance bequeathed to children is great but Godly morals we leave in them is greatest of all legacy, ref Gen 18:19.
They are God's heritage, therefore leaving more of God in them must be prioritized over any of our earthly treasure and acquired wealth.
We must live to understand that it is not what we leave for our children that makes them great. It is what we leave in them.
If you leave enough in them you do not have to worry about what you will leave for them or how they are going to use it .
If you leave enough in them, they will go with it to make a living for themselves without having to live to fight over what you left for them.
One of great legacies is in Prov 22:6:
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Deuteronomy 4:9 Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen, and so that they do not slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and grandchildren.
So when you are planning inheritance, first begin to leave enough in your children. By this you are sure what you are leaving to them what will be kept and handed down to more than one generation: (unto your children's children).
The Christian Clarion Duty
If you only leave your children inheritance without leaving enough in them, they will run through all you left and end up with nothing.
Lord, help me as l prepare goodly inheritance for my children.
Help me to leave in them Godly fear and to keep the way of the Lord, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
