As a mother, I am greatly concerned about my children’s spiritual well being. I pray daily that God would bring them to know Him and they would follow Him all the days of their lives. I’m learning that we can’t just tell our children how to live Godly lives, but we have to show them how. It would be like God telling us to forgive someone seventy times seven, yet not extending that forgiveness to us. That would make no sense to us. It’s not always easy to be that example, but it is necessary. They have to see kindness, forgiveness, graciousness, self-control, and the other attributes of God displayed in our lives.
