Everything we do produces a seed and leaves something for future generations. The Bible says in Matthew 5:16, "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds." See, people may not always hear your words, but they are going to observe your life. I know that I can tell my children all day long how they are supposed to act and what they are supposed to do, but the truth is they are going to do whatever they see me doing. They will respond to life the way I respond to life. When they grow up, they are going to model their lifestyles and their relationships after what they have experienced in our home. That is why it is so important to live a positive example before our children and families. We paint a picture with our lifestyles, and our children put their own frame around it.
Today, I encourage you to paint a picture that your children will be proud to frame. If you haven't set the best example, today is a new day. It's never too late to create vision and purpose in your home and paint a picture that can be passed down to your children and your children's children.Remember, through your example you are investing in generations to come. Let's leave stepping stones, not stumbling blocks, and build a lasting legacy of faith.
