Here's a powerful and insightful song which is appropriate for this genealogy website. As we dig up our family histories we'll often find evidences of the moral characteristics of our ancestors. In many ways our godly ancestors' upstanding lives have resulted in blessings being passed down to us. As described several times in the Bible, likewise the sins and poor choices of our ancestors will come down to us, causing us much grief unless the curses have been broken somewhere along the line. In this song the singer pronounces a blessing on her descendants whom she'll never know.  -RJH

See YouTube video of Sara Groves' song "Generations"

"I can taste the fruit of Eve. I'm aware of sickness death and disease. The results of her choices were vast. Eve was the first but she wasn't the last. And if I were honest with myself, had I been standing at that tree, my mouth and my hands would be covered with fruit. Things I shouldn't know and things I shouldn't see.
Chorus: Remind me of this with every decision. Generations will reap what I sow.
I can pass on a curse or a blessing to those I will never know
She taught us to fear the serpent. I'm learning to fear myself and all of the things I am capable of in my search for wisdom, acceptance and wealth. To say the devil made me do it is a cop-out and a lie. The devil can't make me do anything when I'm calling on Jesus Christ. (Chorus)
To my great-great-great-granddaughter, live in peace. To my great-great-great-grandson, live in peace. To my great-great-great granddaughter, live in peace. To my great-great-great-grandson, live in peace, live in peace. (Chorus). Eve was the first but she wasn't the last."

(Inspired by Deuteronomy 11:26-28)
