Genesis 18:19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
God speaking of Abraham said that He knew him. He knew what Abraham would do. He knew that Abraham would command his children to follow in his footsteps. His children would love and serve God. They would be raised to do right and to trust God as well. God had big plans for Abraham.
As I read this I am reminded that God also knows me. He knows how I will lead my home. He knows what I will teach my children and grandchildren to do. He knows if I will share my faith and help my family to follow Jesus.
I want to be a man that God knows will cause all that I can to love and serve God. Do you ever consider what is known about you? Do you share the faith with your family and all others? This is no game. We are to be busy leading our homes for the Lord Jesus.
If your family follows you will God be their purpose, or money, fame, position, family or something else just as inferior?
