“He lays the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected—even children in the third and fourth generations.” Numbers 14:18 NLT
Thoughts for Today
Parents hand down possessions to their children. Antiques, rings, the family Bible, property … Through their influence, they also hand down character traits, beliefs, habits, behaviors …
Some hand-me-downs are good. Others can result in pain, dysfunction, and aimlessness. Whenever a family member has a life-controlling problem, the entire family is affected. These negative behaviors can be handed down from generation to generation if the chain is not broken.
Although much attention is given to alcoholism running in families, other dependencies and behaviors often have similar results. Negative attitudes and unproductive lifestyles can also pass from generation to generation.
