Our Legacy, Our Children 

Our Legacy, Our Children 

Guest Post By: Christine Laporte 

These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7) 

I once heard it preached from a pulpit of truth 

That our children are our legacy as adults from their youth 

 
When our legacy is threatened by hostility and fear 

We, as their parents, draw close and keep them near 

 
Surrounding our babies regardless of age 

We strive to protect them from falsehood and rage 

 
This can be a battle that we face everyday 

Until forces unseen are kept forever at bay 

 
But scary and disheartening as this reality becomes 

I see panic and worry won’t make darkness run 

 
Worry is just worry, the result is more stress 

Yet God is a sure and faithful fortress 

Our children want hope and peace in these storms 

We are their model of Jesus as Lord

May God's Truth prevail and Love triumph, where we have failed. Amen
