What are you passing on?

Make a wise investment

The righteous man leads a blameless life; blessed are his children after him.
Proverbs 20:7, New International Version

Are you going to leave your children the best inheritance?

No, I am not talking about leaving them a mansion or huge payola in the bank.

I am talking about their morals. Are you teaching them to be honest by your conduct at work or in dealing with others? Are you teaching them to be a good citizen by serving in your community? Are you teaching them to be a good wife or husband by your marriage? Are you teaching them to be a good parent by your affection for them and the amount of time you share with them talking and doing things together?

Being a teacher for seven years I speak from experience when I say to all you parents and grandparents children learn more by watching than by listening. They will remember it all their lives and quite probably pass it on to their children. What do they see when they look at you?

It says somewhere in the Bible that a fathers sins will come unto the third or fourth generation. If you know where it says that would you please be so kind as to reply to this article and show me where it says that? Thank you.

I have personally seen it come true. I have seen a grandfather pass his sinful ways onto his son. When the son got married and had children (Well okay, his wife had the children), the fathers sins were taught to his children. The same thing happened to his children and now his grandchildren. What are you passing on to your children?

"Children will not remember you for the material things you have provided, butfor the feeling that you cherished

them." --Richard L. Evans

Prayer: Jehovah Abba,God our Father, I humbly ask for Your gracious guidance to be a good parent to the precious treasures You have been so charitable as to bestow upon me. May my parenting reflect You. May this be a blessing unto my children unto fourth and fifth generations. In the name of our loving big brother Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day

      Good reminder that we live not only for own benefit, but also for the benefit of those in our sphere of influence.

      We must remember that our children are watching what we do. This influences them more than anything we may say. Thanks for the reminder and the encouragement through scripture.

      Exodus 20:5 is one such verse, and perhaps the very one you are seeking. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but if the imitation is of something distasteful and unrighteous it is "the sin searingest" form of flattery. Good points. Up, useful, awesome, interesting.
