“You ask, ‘Why doesn’t the son bear his father’s guilt?’ When the son has done what is lawful and right, has kept all my laws and obeyed them, he will certainly live. The person who sins is the one that will die — a son is not to bear his father’s guilt with him, nor is the father to bear his son’s guilt with him; but the righteousness of the righteous will be his own, and the wickedness of the wicked will be his own.” - Ezekiel 18:19-20, CJB
“Not Our Burden To Bear”
Family history is an interesting thing. One wrong decision can affect future generations. What we thought was true is now a lie, and now we have to pay for that lie. At least that’s what we think. The sins of our ancestors are not ours to bear. When we become followers of Yeshua, we can break those ties to the past and be free of those burdens. However, this does not mean that the sins of our ancestors does not or cannot affect us wherein Exodus 34:6-7 and Deuteronomy 5:3-8 reminds that the sins of the fathers are visited on the third and fourth generation. With these, we must break sinful pattern within our family lines and renounce them over our lives. We can also repent of our own sins and be more aware of the life choices we make and how it may affect our children and future generations.
We are all sons and daughters of the living God. He is the living God who saves. As long as we follow his ways, nothing can separate us from him.
Be a Blessing and Be Blessed!
