Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6 NASB
As parents it’s our responsibility to raise our children in the way they should go.
Do they see you lying to your friends, co-workers, or their other parent? Do they see you taking the easy way out? Do they hear you gossip to your friends? Do they see you getting drunk? Do they see you dating person after person? Do they see you having sleep overs without being married? Do they see you texting while driving?
They’re watching you to train them in the way they should go.
Do you praise God when things go right, how about when they go wrong? Do you trust in God when times get hard or are you consumed in your emotions?
Children are sponges. They absorb what they see more than what you say.
Be on guard when you live as a parent because you’re raising someones spouse, your grandbabies parents.
Choose to live by example and care more about who they become versus what you want.
Choose them over you.
