Today you should read: 1 Chronicles 8
Another chapter full of genealogies, eh? These chapters might not be the most exciting to read and are difficult to study and apply practically, but they are there for a reason. The author’s words are there because they are inspired by God.
Think about this. Each and every person listed from the various generations has a story. Each had their place in history and left behind some sort of legacy. Some left a legacy of greatness, while others left behind destruction.
Each of us leaves something behind every day, week, month, year, month, and lifetime. If your story were being written today about what you left behind or are leaving behind, what would it say? If your name were listed amongst the genealogy of your family, what might others have to say about you if they studied your personal life history? Will the legacy you leave behind be one that leaves a trail of disciples generation after generation?
Lord, my legacy is being written every day. May I leave behind a legacy that is glorifying to You as a result of Your power working in me.
