Generational Momentum

The Incredible Power of Generational Momentum

Most people in our culture have no idea of the power in what I call generational momentum. Unfortunately, my own father made little investment in my future. I have seen this be the case time and time again. I’ve often screamed “Where are the fathers?” We live in a culture full of people whose struggle has increased due to parents failing to invest in the future of their children.

The truth is that we live in a self-centered culture. We have been socialized to see life in relation to how things affect ME. Generally, people live as if the most important thing is personal success or survival—a narrow perspective that fails to make investments in the next generation(s).

Quite often, when I see a truly stable, successful, productive individual, one who has accomplished great things in great ways, I probe to find out if this individual has been blessed by generational momentum. Without a shadow of a doubt, I have discovered that a great majority of people such as this have generational momentum working for them.

 

Sowing Into the Next Generation:  The Core of Generational Momentum

So what exactly do I mean when I say generational momentum? Let me share an example of a young man named Jason to illustrate this concept. Jason grew up in foster homes, became dependent on drugs and alcohol, had a failed marriage, and then married again. His second wife had a similar life. Her first marriage failed, too. Neither of them had positive generational momentum going for them. No one had sown good seed into their lives.

Then, one day, Jason’s wife got saved. Soon Jason got saved. They grew in God, but still struggled with raising their children, who were all now living with effects from their broken homes. I told Jason, “You’re a first generation Christian.” I told him that it was going to be tough, but I encouraged him to press through and keep planting good seeds, which someday will harvest in his children. I reminded him that his fight is one of love, so that his offspring will not have to go through the sorrowful things he went through in life. This sowing into his children, would lead to generational momentum, as his own children would now be equipped to sow into the next generation when they become parents. And the plan is to keep the momentum going from one generation to the next.

The following illustration is how I see life in relation to this generational momentum: I am cutting through the jungle with my machete, extending the pathway and broadening the clearings. At the end of my life, I pass the machete to my children, or my spiritual children. I tell them all I have learned— how to sharpen the knife, how to cut effectively, what to watch out for, where not to go. Then, they take the knife and build upon what I taught them, enabling them to cut more than I could have cut in five lifetimes. They pass their knowledge on to their children, and so forth.

We live in a short-term-thinking society, where people do what works now despite the far-reaching consequences. People too often forget that the decisions they make now will affect the future. What works well now, may be the curse of the future. But as believers, we must embrace a historical attitude about life and strive to lay the best foundation we can so that those who come behind us will find us faithful. Everything you do will affect, in some way, your children and your children’s children. Your legacy may never be noticed during your stay on earth, but God sees and keeps record till the very end of your influence on earth, which will be way beyond your lifetime. Generational momentum can be a powerful thing, if you take the time to invest. Remember, it’s not all about your or me, it’s all about God’s ultimate plan for us, His body.
