• “Do not lose yourself in your everyday work and activities. Rather, lose yourself in God. When you are doing work, let your innermost heart be centered on Him. Live in His presence and abide in Him. Then your work will follow you into eternity, and you will reap a rich harvest.” – Basilea Schlink

An Example of Holiness? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/10

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?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. — Philippians 2:3-4 (NKJV)
