"The righteous who walks in his integrity-blessed are his children after him!" Proverbs 20:7
What a challenging verse for any parent! It seems simple-do the right thing, have integrity and your children will notice. But it is harder than that! Yes, that is the simple truth but I have to daily fight my sin to do the right thing, the thing that honors God. The benefits outweigh the struggle though. If we fight our flesh to try to do what is right and honoring to the Lord in all the big and little things, it will honor God and it will bless our children. This is good for me to remember. That is worth any suffering or hardship. Lord, let me walk in righteousness and integrity today!
