Scripture for Monday, November 20 (11/20)

Scripture for Monday, November 20 (11/20)

Posted by on

The scripture for today, November 20 (11/20), is Hebrews 11:20ffas found in the New Testament of the Bible:

"By faith, Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau in regard to their future. By faith Jacob when he was dying, blessed each of Joseph'ssons....By faith Joseph, when his end was near, spoke about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt and gave instructions about his bones."

Do we have children that were so loving and good when they were young, but when they became older they changed? Do we sometimes wonder, "How could I have gone so wrong with my children?" True, they have free will. But do we feel like failures because our children did not turn out the way we had hoped and prayed?

Have faith ~ the faith of Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. Isaac blessed his sons with his land, even though he did not yet own the land. Jacob blessed his sons with power, even though they did yet not have power. Joseph blessed his sons and his brothers' sons with the land, yet they no longer lived in it.

They all blessed their children with something they believed would happen someday, even though the evidence was not there. Why? Because they had faith in their children? Actually, it was mostly because they had faith in God. They had faith in what God would do for their children.

Let us keep on keeping on. Let us never stop having faith in what God (even after we die) will do for our children.
