AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE...LEADING BY EXAMPLE
MY TEENAGER WAS GETTING INTO TROUBLE AND ONE DAY LAST WEEK I FOUND MYSELF TALKING TO A CO-WORKER OF MINE ABOUT IT AND I TOLD HER "TO BE HONEST I KNOW HE IS ACTING THIS WAY BECAUSE OF A DOOR I OPENED". SUNDAY IN CHURCH THE PASTOR SAID THAT CHILDREN ARE DOING WHAT THEY SEE YOU DO (PARAPHRASING). THEN MY COUSIN POSTED THE VIDEO THAT I AM SHARING WITH YOU IN THIS POST. GOD WAS CRYSTAL CLEAR ABOUT THIS...BE A GODLY, HOLY EXAMPLE FOR YOUR CHILDREN
7 If thou doest well , shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well , sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
13 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour , and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat .
14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve ; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell : but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD
