Isa. 54. 13.
As a responsible parent I hear you say, ‘Am I responsible for my child’s spiritual choices?’ Ultimately no, but potentially, yes! If you want to take the spiritual temperature of any family, stick a thermometer in the mouth of the parents.
But my children are already grown up. Isn’t it too late you ask? No, by no means, for God’s name is ‘Redeemer’ – He can give you another chance. Repent; commit your life to Christ and live for Him again. That’s how generational cycles of failure are broken and God is brought back into the picture.
Again I hear you say, ‘I’m afraid to bring a child into this evil world’. Yet this is the whole point; it’s children of the light who push back the darkness. Instead of reacting out of fear or convenience, use your family to impact the world’. Every study confirms that a parent has by far the greatest influence – greater than friends, school, or the media, in determining the character and direction of a child.
Parent; invest every shred of your energy into seeing that your children cross the finish line for God. You have no higher calling than that.
