Let's dive right in, shall we?
This study has truly tugged at my heart as I am a mother and it has made me pretty concious of what kind of legacy I am leaving behind.
You can read this week's devotional too based on:
'The righteous lead blameless lives; blessed are their children after them.' Proverbs 20:7
In yesterday's post, we were called to reflect on our actions and attitudes that we portray in our lives and that our children are able to see in us.
We hope that as we sat in the quiet confronted by God's loving presence, that we were able to realize what are those attitudes and behaviors that have been leaving negative imprints in them. In the same manner, we hope that you were also able to recognize the good traits that are also making a memory in their heart.
Today, we invite you reflect on the effect.
When we think of our children or those younger than us that we hold dear, what kind of person do we hope for them to grow up to be?
Kindhearted, gentle, patient and a great role model are some words that come to mind.
How can we as parents or mentors do our part in encouraging those traits from early on? How can we model these behaviors to them?
Write down some ideas and share them with the Lord. Take it in prayer that He be your guide in raising men and women who model Jesus Christ.
We hope that today's quiet time can be of blessing. Keep us in prayer as we will do the same.
