Blessings on a Generation

Psalm 112:1-2 (NLT)

Praise the LORD! How joyful are those who fear the LORD and delight in obeying his commands. Their children will be successful everywhere; an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.

I love this passage.  I love the promise it gives.

Obey His commands and your children WILL be succeful.

Obey His commands and a generation of godly people WILL be blessed.

Obey His commands - delight in it.
Delight: Take great pleasure or joy in it
Don't just obey His commands out of obligation, but do it because you want to.  Do it because the Lord is good.  Do it because God loves you and you love Him.

The blessings on your children are blessings on you.

  1. I love this passage too, because it's not just about obeying...the key is DELIGHTING IN. Makes a world of difference, doesn't it! :)

  2. It really does, Wendy. It's one thing to go through the motions, but to actually take joy in following God - that's the way to live! Truly live!

Comments are nice, but rudeness is unacceptable.
