• “Christ makes it clear that we cannot love both Him and the things that charm and ravish this world. We cannot be dazzled by the images of pop-culture and captivated by the King of all kings” – Leslie Ludy

An Example of Holiness? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/16/11

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.

  • “In case any are puzzled by the different translations from which I draw strength and help and delight, it is like this: In studying any object with the microscope we use different lenses and turn the mirror in various ways; each change brings out some new wonder and beauty. So it is for those who are not Greek or Hebrew scholars, and who use the work of scholars to open the meaning of the exhaustible Word–the Bible is richer than any single version can fully show.” – Amy Carmichael

Verse of the Day

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. — Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
