SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Max Jukes lived in New York City. He did not believe in Christ or in Christian training. He refused to take his children to church even when they asked to go. He has had 1,026 descendants; 300 were sent to prison for an average term of 13 years; 190 were public prostitutes; 680 were admitted alcoholics. His family thus far has cost the state in excess of $420,000. They have made on contribution to society that is of any benefit.
Jonathan Edwards lived in the same state, at the same time as Jukes. He loved the Lord and saw that his children were in church every Sunday and he served the Lord to the best of his ability. He had 929 descendants; of these; 430 were ministers; 86 became university presidents; 75 authored good books; 5 were elected to the United States Congress and 2 to the Senate. One was vice-President of this nation. His family never cost the state one cent but has contributed immeasurably to the life of plenty in this land today.
How is your influence and what legacy will you leave with your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren? It's something to think about!!
