Episode Info: If you've just arrived here after hearing my interview with Carey Green on the Christian Home & Family podcast - Welcome to Stewardship Weekly!   Here's our thought for today from Proverbs 13:22a; "A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children" Usually when we think of an inheritance, we think about money. Cash, investments, family heirlooms, vehicles or real estate. It doesn't matter what it is - the questions is - when do I get it? But let's switch it around and think of it from the other side - what am I leaving for my kids? Besides some financial gain, there's a far greater inheritance that you want to leave. You want to leave a Godly heritage. "That sounds good but where do I start?" 2 things you can do to pass on great inheritance to your children & children's children (while you're still living!);   1. TALK WITH YOUR KIDS a) About God. Try to assess their spiritual maturity. Where are they at? Are they progressing in their relationship with the Lord or simply going through the motions as they live in a 'Christian' home? Use this knowledge when making purchases for them. ie. books, video series, audio, etc. For the younger ones, Adventures in Odyssey is good. If you have a preteen, take a serious look at Passport2Purity by FamilyLife Today. b) About Yourself. Let them get to know you - your hopes, dream, disappointments, etc. This helps them know how to pray for you. If they get to know more about you, they can engage in more meaningful prayer & move away from generic prayers. Since they're praying for specific things, they're also more likely to follow up and wants some feedback. c) About Themselves. Turn it around. Ask about their hopes, dreams, disappointments, fears, etc. This helps you know how to pray for them! If they can see that you genuinely want to learn about them, when the time comes, they'll be more likely to discuss things with you. ie. peer pressure situations, relationship advice, career choices, etc. (As I was finishing up my notes to record this episode, my inbox chirped with a new email. It was from Carey Green at Christian Home & Family. Attached was this article. I believe it was the Lord giving His approval for what I was preparing to share.) 2. TIME WITH YOUR KIDS a) Do Things They Like. Why not go where they're at? Show them your schedule and let them see that you've blocked out 3 hours on a Saturday just for them. Tell them to think about it then fill in the blank. Age appropriate activitie
