Your Legacy, Curse or Blessing?

The following are the words of a beautiful song by Sara Groves. Her songs speak to me in such a powerful way – I hope they might for you as well. I have the highlighted chorus written on a card that I keep within view to remind me of how my actions and attitude can affect others.

Generations by Sara Groves

I can taste the fruit of Eve
I’m aware of sickness, death, and disease
The results of her choices are vast
Eve was the first but she wasn’t the last

And if I were honest with myself
Had I been standing at that tree
My mouth and my hands would be covered with fruit
Things I shouldn’t know and things I shouldn’t see

Remind me of this with every decision
Generations will reap what I sow
I can pass on a curse or a blessing
To those, I will never know

She taught me to fear the serpent
I’m learning the fear myself
And all of the things I am capable of
In my search for wisdom, acceptance, and wealth

And to say that the devil made me do it
Is a cop out and a lie
The devil can’t make me do anything
When I’m calling on Jesus Christ

Remind me of this with every decision
Generations will reap what I sow
I can pass on a curse or a blessing
To those, I will never know

To my great, great, great granddaughter
Live in peace
To my great, great, great grandson
Live in peace
To my great, great, great granddaughter
Live in peace
To my great, great, great grandson
Live in peace, oh, live in peace

Remind me of this with every decision
Generations will reap what I sow
I can pass on a curse or a blessing
To those, I will never know

Oh, remind me
Generations will reap what I sow
I can pass on a curse or a blessing
To those, I will never know
Oh, I may never know

Have a blessed day!
