Parents’ Lives Affect their Children’s Future

1 Kgs. 11:9-13

Parents will affect their children’s future, sometimes in ways completely unforeseen. Rehoboam, though responsible for his own errors, needed faithful parents to look up to. Rehoboam did not get that from his father, Solomon, who allowed his moral and spiritual failures to gain an upper hand on him. That can happen to us too when we don’t give proper attention to the Lord and His will in our lives. Are we playing our roles well as parents? How are we living our lives before God? Our children are watching us and are being influenced by us. Do they see in us examples of strong faith and commitment, or spiritual weakness and failure? The Bible says, “For He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers that they should teach them to their children, that the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born, that they may arise and tell them to their children, that they should put their confidence in God and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments.” (Ps. 78:5-7). In the New Testament we also read, “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” (Eph. 6:4).

Point of Emphasis:   Your children are learners in the school of life; what are they learning from you?

Prayer Point:            Lord, help me to live a positive life that my children can model theirs after.
