Learning to Pass on a Legacy to your Children

It has been a while since I have written. One thing I am learning as I am raising my two youngest girls is how we pass on our culture to our children. As I was watching "El Chavo del Ocho" with my daughters, it was for the purpose of hearing Spanish at home and learning from Latin culture. It is funny and although it is originally from Mexico;  I grew up with it when I was in Venezuela.
As I was watching  the show and laughing having a family good time, I see the connection of passing on a legacy not only of our Latino culture but more importantly our culture of the Kingdom of Heaven.  Our children are a heritage from the Lord. We teach our children the language of Heaven (the Holy Spirit) and show them how to be in the Presence of God, through prayer and reading the Word of God. First, we must teach our children at home that Jesus is his/her best friend, have your children have the experience of salvation? Do they know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and wants to be his/her friend? Life and Death depend on it. Secondly, we must teach them how to pray  and be in the Presence of God through spending time in prayer and the Word. Have your children learned the discipline of using their prayer language?  How ? by sharing  how this took place in the book of Acts and how it is for today. The first minister that they will see is you.  You are loved and accepted!
