Day 31 - Intentional Goodness for the Classroom

There will be only one post on this second weekend in Lent as we count down the days of intentional goodness towards Easter. It is my hope that you focus on your goodness at home, specifically on the children in your home or a relative’s home. One of the most powerful things my grandmom demonstrated to me was the goodness of intentionally providing for her children’s children.

A verse to ponder

Prov. 13:22 – A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children….

An intentional blessing for the classroom

Have you thought about your children’s children and what kind of world they will be growing up in? As adults, it is our responsibility to pass on something to them. Today, identify a specific child or children to whom you want to begin a little inheritance for. It may be establishing family stories to pass on, it may be a share or two of stock that will grow over time, or it may even be the beginning of college savings. Today’s intentional act of kindness is to begin a plan of goodness for our children’s children.

A focus of reflection

My grandmom purchased 3 shares of Standard Oil stock for each of her 13 grandchildren in the 60’s. I have never touched mine and now have 264 shares of Exxon-Mobil stock. She understood the children’s children concept. God’s principles are always in our best interest. My hope is that today is the day we can begin planning or tweaking our intentional goodness towards our own family. Have a restful weekend in Him.
