Don't leave it for your children to do


"Every person should seek to improve, personally, through his own energies, in any way he can find, whether in his Torah study or in his good deeds.

"He should not depend upon his children to complete the task after him through their deeds, or for them to elevate his status [through their good deeds]. Certainly, his children will also be busy with their affairs, and they, too, will not have time to improve their deeds, and they will depend upon their own children, who in turn will depend upon their descendants, and his hope will be for naught!"

(R' Yisrael Meir Kagan (Chafetz Chaim), Ahavat Chesed, Perek 4)

Have a great day,
