In Proverbs (22:6), we are reminded that our children's behaviors are tied to their upbringing. As my daughter's actions remind me on a daily basis, children absorb and reflect the behaviors of those around them. If we want our children to know God and follow His path for their lives, then we must follow His path for our lives and share those experiences with our children. If we are the tree rooted firmly in God, then our children will understand the presence of God in their lives, too!
Keep your tree rooted firmly in God and don't let the apples fall too far from Him!
Thank You for all of those that have helped me learn about You and become closer with You. Help me to be an example for You in the lives of my child and all of Your children that I encounter. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
