A generations thing

After Hebrews 11:17-22

It threads its way

through generations,

this thing called faith,

expressed in different

ways but passed through

nonetheless. It may be

the willingness to sacrifice.

It may be including all

of one’s children. It

may be helping 

your grandchildren. It

may be how one is

buried and giving

credit when its due

for blessing and

deliverance. But

down through

the generations it

flows, a blessing

of grace not to be

rejected, not to be

ridiculed, not to be

disregarded, but to be

nurtured and grown.
