Prov. 22:6, Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
Direct – going from one place to another without changing direction or stopping.
Train – teach a skill or type of behavior through regular practice and instruction.
Eph 6:4, And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
YOU AND I ARE A REFLECTIONS OF OUR PARENTS WALK WITH GOD!
That is a sobering thought. If our parents were passionate for God and His house, then that was our direction, that was our teaching. We have implanted into us the direction of our parents, and it is reflected for generations.
“My parents didn’t serve God, but I do, so what does that show?”
Just look around at the people you know and watch their children. If the parent does not go to church, do the children? The vast majority of children believe, do, and are passionate about what their parents believe.
IF GOD AND CHURCH ARE NOT “THAT” IMPORTANT TO YOU AS A DAD AND MOM, THEN JESUS AND HIS HOUSE WILL “NOT” BE IMPORTANT TO YOUR GRANDCHILDREN!
Grandchildren? Where did that come from? Our children reflect our love for Jesus and His Kingdom, just like our grandchildren will reflect theirs. THAT MEANS OUR PRIORITIES FOR GOD, CHURCH, AND MINISTRY WILL BE OUR GRANDCHILDREN’S.
WOW, that is simply amazing when we think about how many lives REFLECT ours……WHAT IS IN YOUR MIRROR OF LOVE FOR GOD AND HIS HOUSE?
WHY ARE YOU SHOCKED AT YOUR CHILDREN, AND YOUR CHILDREN’S CHILDREN, THEY ARE TRAINED BY YOU!
