“Walking in Generational Blessings”- Joseph Mattera
“Walking In Generational Blessings, Leaving a Legacy of Transformation Through Your Family”, is an absolute must read by Bishop Joseph Mattera.
Ministry begins at home is one of the critical entries I extrapolated from this book. It is very refreshing for a well-known man of God to speak the truth without sugar coating the message in a culture teaching, “do what you feel is best for you.” We, as children of God, must commit to adhering to and epitomizing our Lord, Jesus Christ at all cost. It is clear in this book that if we follow the blueprint of God, our families, churches, communities and ultimately the world would be in a very different state.
This book also lets the reader come to the realization that one of the things that have been lost is discipline and training of our children by the parents, as well as those we lead. If we are to recapture where we need to be, we must return to the fundamentals of God’s word. To regain and restore our generations’ legacy we will have to effect influence and momentum to adhere again to the mandates and principles of the unadulterated Word of God.
Bishop Mattera reminds us about how God ordained the husband and the wife in their very unambiguous calling. As we begin our families, we must make some very essential decisions in the inception of our coming together and deciding to marry. It is crucial that we follow some very elementary teachings of God’s word and instill them in our children as they grow in Christ. There should be no deviation from these instructions and they will accomplish their God given purpose. Does that mean we have to refrain from doing things in this very competitive and education driven culture? I would say, No! This I will say very plainly, we must plan and make the appropriate choices and commit to doing our God given responsibilities first and foremost as leaders in our homes.
