WEDNESDAY, August 8 

Acts 3:25 You are the descendants of the prophets and of the covenant that God gave to your ancestors, saying to Abraham, “And in your descendants all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

What do you think is the greatest gift you’ll leave behind? Will you leave a legacy of children, financial gifts that will bless others, or works or ideas that will shape future generations? 

Peter reminds the crowd that they are indeed inheritors of great blessings from both God and their forbearers. These blessings come with a cost: To whom much is given, much is expected.

Are you happy with the ripples that your life is creating upon the waters of this fragile earth? Are you actively making your life a part of the stream of blessings that began when God chose Abraham and expanded when Jesus came into the world?

If you feel like you could do more, I have great news for you. If you are reading this, you are still alive. There is still time! Be like Abraham and bless all the families of the earth!
