This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at www.jenniferhudsontaylor.net.

Word of Inspiration: You Have an Inheritance of Glory Waiting

"The wise shall inherit glory, but shame shall be the legacy of fools." (Proverbs 3:35) 

Notice that this verse says the wise will inherit glory not earn it. This means that glory will be given to us as a gift, and it isn't something we have to work for in order to obtain it. Too many people squander their inheritance and take it for granted. They don't cherish or invest it. Spend your inheritance wisely. Pray for God's wisdom and the ability to not only have wisdom, but to apply it in your life and share it with others--to invest it in future generations. 

Many people want to leave a legacy, but I'm sure it isn't a legacy of shame they have in mind. Rather, they want to leave a legacy of accomplishment, something for others to aspire to. We can only do this if we live for God. This is living wisely. The foolish man or woman departs from God's Word, paving a path of his or her own. Any path that isn't on God's path, leads to self-destruction and a legacy of shame. 

Remember, pray for wisdom and the ability to apply it in your life.
