Tithing: Passing on the gift of giving

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

Passing on your family values is one of the best things you can do for your children


Joshua 1:8 – This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.


Are you preparing your estate?

Do you have all of your assets with the proper titling?

Now let me ask you…are you planning on passing on more than your money?

That is what today’s devotional is about. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to leave money to the next generation and preach generational wealth, but what about the knowledge to manage that money? What about preparing the next generation with your vision for their future with the resources you have acquired?

In this scripture Joshua has just been appointed as leader after the death of Moses. Verse 8 is the Lord speaking to Joshua. He instructs him on how to approach his new leadership. He encourages him to keep the Laws of Moses. Telling him to make sure that he truly internalizes the information. If not, he will not ready to lead the people righteously and continue Moses’ legacy.

In finances, we work our whole lives to build our financial legacy. We may even have enough money to set the next generation up for success but what have you given them as far as knowledge and instruction?

What law have you given to them to meditate on day and night?

When they have a tough decision to make as far as their finances, what will they reference?

Because the Lord says when we follow those laws, then thou shalt have good success…thou shalt make thy way prosperous.

Today, I want you to think beyond your finances and think about how you are going to prepare your heirs.

Remember our 4 questions we need to understand before we can be satisfied with our financial plans.

Who owns it?

How much is enough?

Who are the next heirs?

And the key question today…Are they prepared?

Prayer: Lord, I am grateful for all that you have provided in my life. I want to provide the next generation with the knowledge and wisdom to be good stewards over what they will inherit. I pray that they will continue the legacy of making biblically responsible decisions that will make you proud.
