Your choices affect your children.
The decisions you make carry consequences for ages to come. This can be a very good or very bad thing. No matter what your former choices have been, changing your ways changes the dynamic of everything around you. Set yourself apart from worldly pleasures and commit yourself to be completely devoted to Me. Doing this will enable you to hear My still small voice. Obeying what I tell you empowers you to break free from the generational assignments that have hindered your quality of life. In addition to that benefit, it also clears the way for your children and your children’s children.
I am jealous for worship, bringing punishment on you and your children to come, even down to your great-grandchildren, to whoever hates Me. Instead, those who obey My commands and truly love Me will receive My loyal love endlessly, even for a thousand generations.
— Deuteronomy 5:9b-10 (VOICE)
