What is Going to Happen to Your Family in your Generation?
All matter have the same basic process of unfolding. Human families like energy follow the same 3 process way.
New Creation, Stasis and Entropy!
Creation, Balance, Destruction!
Growth, Stability, Death!
Increase, Sustenance and Dissipation!
This phenomenon is the birthplace of the proverb –“shirtsleeve to shirtsleeve in 3 generations”, or “rice paddy to rise paddy in 3 generations”.
Wealth doesn’t last, one generation creates, the next generation experiences stasis and the 3rd generation dissipates. It’s the reason why children of successful children usually don’t pass success to the next generation. The unbuilt child, always sells the built house.
How do you ensure that your family escapes this natural trend? Man has tried to answer that question for years, but what man ends up doing is exactly the opposite of what helps the trend to change.
1. We try to give our children a life we didn’t have. In the process we destroy their creative capacities and condemn them to stasis.
2. We try to spoil them with good things. In the end, they are dependent on the good life, can’t imagine not having and end up spending more than they earn.
There is a way that seems right, but the end is destruction! The path that leads to long-term eternal value is narrow, and only few find it.

Your generation is either creating, sustaining or destroying, and the skills to stay ahead of destructive trends is not being taught in schools.
Unrepentantly in Love with God and His Creation.
