Theme:  Leverage On Heritage


“Recognize and respect your heritage, for your greatness often stems from the greatness of those who came before. Express gratitude to those who shaped your life, remain humble, and honor your heritage.”



  • Leveraging on Heritage: The text emphasizes the importance of recognizing and respecting one’s heritage and ancestry. It draws examples from biblical figures like Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Jesus to illustrate how their greatness and significance were rooted in their heritage.
  • Greatness Through Ancestry: The text advises against aspiring to be greater than one’s ancestors, but rather, to understand that one’s greatness is often derived from the greatness of those who came before. For instance, the children of Israel did not aim to be greater than Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob; their greatness was interconnected with that of the patriarchs.
  • Honoring Ancestry: Isaac, for example, honored Abraham as his father and acknowledged that his greatness came from being Abraham’s son. The text encourages individuals to honor their biological parents, mentors, and spiritual leaders for their role in shaping their lives.
  • Preservation of Heritage: The text underscores the significance of those who came before in preserving and passing down precious teachings and scriptures. It suggests that recognizing and respecting this principle is crucial for living a victorious life.
  • Gratitude and Humility: Believers are encouraged to express gratitude for the wisdom, experiences, and examples provided by those who have played significant roles in their lives. They are advised to remain humble and honor their heritage.
