Luke 19:50 He shows mercy from generation to generation to all who fear him.
To understand this verse you have to know what the words "mercy" and "fear" mean in the Bible... Mercy: A blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion. .... in this passage Fear means profound reverence and awe....so if we show God profound reverence and awe God will shower us with blessings of divine favor... and he will show us compassion.... and if we show God profound reverence he will give our children and their children and their children blessings and divine favor and compassion..... isn't that exciting!!... so even if you don't do it for you, do it for your children and their children... Study your Bible... talk with God in prayer.... learn what he wants for your life... what better gift can you give your children than God's mercy... isn't that powerful!!...and exciting!!!
