Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12 NKJVIt would be easy to teach our kids everything they need to know about life if we could teach them with words alone. But we can't. Our kids hear some of the things we say, but they watch everything we do.
As parents, we are unforgettable role models for our children and our grandchildren. As they observe our lives and the choices we have made, they'll see what rewards come to those who worship God and obey His commandments.
Is your faith demonstrated in the example you set for your children? If so, you will be blessed--and so will they. So today, as you fulfill your many responsibilities, remember that your family is watching...and so, for that matter, is God.
The mother is and must be, whether she knows it or not, the greatest, strongest, and most lasting teacher her children will have. (Hannah Whitall Smith)
