Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do your kids see one side of you at church . . .
“Now look down at verse 25. It says that we should put away lying and speak the truth.”
Nancy: . . . and another side at home?
“I just called in sick to work. Let’s go shopping!”
Nancy: Parents don’t usually realize how much their example affects their children. Kids know what their parents’ standards are.
They notice when their parents use language at home they’d never say in public. They notice when their parents belittle each other. They know what kinds of videos parents rent and what they laugh at on TV.
If your kids grow up loving the world more than God, if they don’t have a hunger for spiritual things, will it be any surprise? Will you be prepared to give an account for the way your life influenced them?
As you make choices today, would you remember that your heart for holiness is shaping the character of the next generation?
