Proverbs 22:6 

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it.

It is the little things that children see that will affect them the most.

When my parents decided to shut a radio station off, or leave a restaurant because of a bad atmosphere, or whatever situation it was, it was witnessing their actions that had the biggest impact on me as a child. When I got older, and faced similar situations on my own, it was how my parents reacted to those situations that came into my mind first. If my parents would have compromised on their standards in front of me when I was young, you could have counted on me making compromises with similar circumstances.

Regardless of the home situation you grew up in, there is always one thing that remains true: you can choose how the rest of your life will be spent. You can choose what kind of standards you will hold, or not hold. You have the choice of whether your house will serve the Lord or not. You have the choice of how you react to things.

Remember that there are always people watching what we do, and how we act will affect those people. When it comes to children, those younger than we are, and those who might look up to us, we have a responsibility to show them the Word. Always be aware of that fact.

Be the example that you want to see. Allow the Lord to work in your home, and in your life, to bring you to what you desire to be. He is ready and willing to make your legacy a positive one in this life.

Be a good example for someone.

60-0309 - “Why?”

Your life will impress your children, and have—influence your children by the example you set before them. And I think it's a good thing that we put every effort we can before our children as godly parents. Make an example, be an example.
